Classic rain dance
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
