FFBOS are extremely proud to present the much loved Singin' in the Rain at the Dugdale Centre. Adapted from the classic MGM movie musical starring Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds, Singin' in the Rain is the feel good show that has been loved by many generations of musical lovers.

Set in the late 1920's, talking pictures are now taking over from silent movies, and silent movie star Don Lockwood must make the big leap into this new chapter of cinema. Aided by his good friend and co-star Cosmo Brown, he and Cosmo find the transition to talkies a difficult move and encounter a number of obstacles along the way, including their female co-star Lina Lamont, whose shrill tones are not well suited to this new era of sound in pictures.

Waiting in the wings is Kathy Seldon, a star in the making who offers Don and Cosmo her help to transform their motion picture "The Duelling Cavalier" into a smash hit musical success. Falling for Don's charms along the way, will Kathy and Don's romance interfere with their working relationsip, and will Lina discover their plans and ruin their future together?

Featuring classic musical tunes "Good Morning", "Make 'Em Laugh", and of course the title track - "Singin' in the Rain" is the classic musical loved by all, that will be brought to life by North London's premier theatre company.
