Tue 18 Mar - Sat 5 Apr 2014 (ARCHIVED LISTING)
Singin' in the Rain tells the story of the first Hollywood musical, when the silver screen found its voice and left silent movies - and some of its stars – behind.
This spectacular show is packed full of the charm, romance, comedy and tinseltown glamour of one the world’s best loved movies and features all the songs from the glorious MGM score including Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the classic Singin’ in the Rain.
With high-energy choreography and sumptuous set design (including 12,000 litres of water) Singin’ in the Rain showers you with everything you could wish for in a hit musical.
Maxwell Caulfield will play RF Simpson with Faye Tozer as Lina Lamont , alongside James Leece as Don Lockwood, Amy Ellen Richardson as Kathy Selden and Stephane Anelli as Cosmo Brown.
Take a look at ITV Central's backstage report here.
Steps star, Faye Tozer tells us more about the production and her life on and off stage in our exclusive video update here.

What a great show brilliant had a great. Time Singing in the rain rocks .
Doe,Haddon \\ 06/04/2014
came to see this with my mom. it's one of my favourite musicals ever & would of hated to be disappointed. it was brilliant, nothing was left out, cast were fab, costumes amazing and the raining scenes (which i was sceptical about) were outstandingly well done. hats off to the men in the interval who got rid of every tiny drop of water and dried the whole stage ready for the second half. would definately recommend to anyone of any age. well done everyone in front & behind the scenes!

I opened this to write a review but I cannot do better than the previous reviewer, Mike Hughes, who has said all the things I would have written. I organised a coach trip to the show and everyone thought it exceptional entertainment with wonderful performances all round.
June Dorrington \\ 03/04/2014
As great as the English language is I find it hard to find superlatives to say just how good this show is, Pure escapism, fun and entertainment, filled with laughter and words many of us know from the iconic movie which this production pays a great homage to. James Leece (Don Lockwood) give a virtuoso performance of song and dance, balanced by the superb voice of Amy Ellen Richardson (Cathy Seldon), Cosmo played by Stephane Anelli has a gift for timing, but the one for me who steals the show is Fay Tozer (linda Lamont) to sing and talk that "badly" takes great skill and she for me steals the show. I have only one minor criticism and that's the volume and frequency of the dry ice use, which caused real issues for the first several rows on Friday evenings performance. If you can go see it, you will not be sorry, unless you miss it of course.
Mike Hughes \\ 24/03/2014
Brilliantly performed, could have listened all night to Amy Richardson's voice, absolutely superb. A wonderful uplifting show that captured amazing talent and combined it with humour and style. I loved it.
Mrs Dee \\ 20/03/2014
