Clas­sic rain dance

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EVENTS -

Re­live a mo­men­tous num­ber of mem­o­rable mo­ments from the film Sin­gin' in the Rain with the 110th pro­duc­tion by LAMPS.

The show, which will be staged at the EM Forster The­atre at Ton­bridge School this Easter will be filled with a cas­cade of fa­mil­iar songs and tin­sel­town glam­our from the golden age of movie and the­atre mu­si­cals.

The stage adap­ta­tion is set in the roar­ing 20s, when silent movie stars were the big­gest names in the world. Screen star Don Lock­wood has it all, in­clud­ing a stu­dio-en­gi­neered ro­mance with co-star Lina La­mont, un­til cho­rus girl Kathy Selden steals his heart – but over Lina's dead body. Di­rec­tor and chore­og­ra­pher Adele Eb­bage said: "This is our third show since re­turn­ing to Ton­bridge and we’re hugely ex­cited to be bring­ing such a well known, well-loved clas­sic to the EM Forster stage for the first time.”

The show fea­tures all the songs from the MGM score in­clud­ing Good Morn­ing, Make ‘em Laugh, and of course the clas­sic Sin­gin’ in the Rain. Ian Black­more takes on the lead role of Don – made fa­mous by Gene Kelly in the 1952 film.

The group cel­e­brated their 90th birth­day last year. DE­TAILS Sin­gin’ in the Rain by LAMPS will be staged at the EM Forster

The­atre in Ton­bridge from Wed­nes­day, April 4 to Satur­day, April 7. Buy tick­ets at £15 from lamps.org. uk or by call­ing 01732 304 241.
