SALT Performing Arts Presents the Hit Classic, Singin’ in the Rain

Singin' in the RainImage by Gordon Johnson

CHESTER SPRINGS, PA — Experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age! It’s 1927 and Don Lockwood and Lina LaMont are the toast of Tinseltown until “talkies” come on the scene. Of course, you remember Gene Kelly splashing his way through the famous MGM film, the greatest movie musical ever made. But have you seen it live? Join us as we make a big splash with this spectacular and romantic musical comedy. There will be wonderful singin’ and dancin’ and, yes, it really will rain onstage! Featuring the legendary original MGM score including your favourite songs like ‘Make ’em Laugh’, ‘Good Morning’, ‘Moses Supposes’ and the defining ‘Singin’ in the Rain’.

“You’ll be tappin’ your toes and singin’ along in our snappy adaptation of the celebrated and beloved film. We’ve faithfully and lovingly adapted the “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” so that each unforgettable scene, song, and dance is accounted for, including the show-stopping title number, complete with an onstage rainstorm!” expresses Lauren McComas, President and Artistic Director of SALT Performing Arts. “And, as luck would have it, I’m returning to the stage as the glamorous, but perhaps a tad bit off-putting, and crass, Lina Lamont, the silent film star who is the most refined when she is silent. The whole family will enjoy this feel-good classic! For a special treat, we’re celebrating opening night Hollywood style with Blacktie dress and champagne!”
