SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

April 29 – May 29, 2016

Friday 8pm | Saturday 2pm & 8pm | Sunday 2pm

Screenplay by Betty Comden & Adolph Green | Songs by Nacio Herb Brown & Arthur Freed

Produced by Garden Theatre  |  Directed by Kenny Howard

This musical has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers. In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen. Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. A downpour of unforgettable songs and dancing make this classic a favorite!

Tickets: $25 - $33 ($15 for ages 12 and under on Saturday matinees)

Special pricing for opening night, seniors and students.

This show is appropriate for all audiences.
