“Singin’ in the Rain” presented at Versailles High School Theater

One of the most beloved musicals in theatre and movie history is coming to the Versailles Performing Arts Center in April. The Versailles High School Musical Theatre is extremely proud to announce their 2015 Musical Production, SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN! This beloved musical ranks as the fifth greatest motion picture of all time. Now adapted for the stage, Singin’ in the Rain “pours” down delight, capturing the transitional days going from the silent screen era to the new-fangled “talkies.”

The public is screaming for more “talkies” after the successful premier of the Jazz Singer, forcing the entire movie industry to, leave behind the silent film era. When Monumental Studios turns the silent, Dueling Cavalier, into a talkie musical film, starring the great Don Lockwood (Mason DeMange) and leading lady, Lina Lamont, (Abigail White) they are faced with a problem: silent movie star, Lina can’t sing, and can’t even really talk. Lina’s voice sounds something like nails on a chalkboard. This predicament causes Don, his sidekick, Cosmo (Mitchell Rawlins) and the entire production crew searching for a solution! Entering into this tangled mess is Kathy Selden (Jordan Phillips), an upcoming actress with the perfect sound to cover for Lina’s screeching voice.

Show dates for Singin’ in the Rain are April 9th, 10th, and 2 shows on April 11th. All seats are reserved. And yes – for the first time ever at Versailles, it will really be raining on stage! You do not want to miss this groundbreaking production! We hope to see you there! TO ORDER TICKETS, CALL 937-526-3017.
