Be enthralled by this high energy adaptation of the beloved 1950s film which will sweep you into the golden age of movie musicals for an uplifting, feel good, all-singing and all-dancing evening of entertainment full of stunning dance routines, and larger than life comedy moments, as HAODS bring the Broadway classic ‘Singin in the Rain’ to the Capitol Theatre this May.
The timeless favourite is brought to life here on the Horsham stage by a talented 40+ strong cast, telling the story of the dreamboat actor, the elegant but feisty Hollywood starlet, the comedy sidekick guaranteed to ‘make em laugh’ and the fresh-faced actress looking for her big break in the ruthless and changing world of the movies!
It’s 1927 and Hollywood royalty Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are enjoying success after success on screen as the golden couple of the Monumental Pictures studio. And, if you believe what you read in the papers, they are enjoying romance off screen together too! When their careers as the stars of the silent screen are thrown into jeopardy with the invention of ‘talkies’ they are forced to act…fast!
Find out what lengths Lina will go to in order to protect her public image with a voice that could cut glass, and fall in love as Don falls for new girl on the scene, Kathy Seldon, a chorus girl with huge ambition and the talent to topple Lina’s reign.
Will their first foray into the talkies ‘The Duelling Cavalier’ ever be a success? Can Lina keep her crown as the queen of the silver screen? What exactly does Moses supposes? Just how much patience can a vocal coach have and will Kathy see her name in lights as she dreams?
Join HAODS and be swept away by the musical, which was voted as the second greatest movie musical of all time by The Guardian newspaper.
