Singin' in the Rain
About Singin' in the Rain
Hosted by Julian Clary, Showtime Challenge 48-Hour Musicals brings together a cast of 100(ish) professional actors and talented amateurs, a 30-piece orchestra, and a hard-working production team. All giving up their time for the chosen charity, they pull together to produce a West End-standard all-singing, all-dancing musical in just 48 hours.
Rehearsals start on the Friday night. None of the cast have worked together on the show before this time. Then 48 amazing, exciting, exhausting hours later, ready or not, it’s showtime!
Singin’ in the Rain is set in the roaring ’20s. Silent movie stars are the biggest names in the world. Don Lockwood has it all, a string of hit films and a studio-engineered romance with the most beautiful actress in town. But with the new phenomenon of the talking picture on the way and a chance meeting with a talented young chorus girl set to steal his heart, things are about to change for Don and for Hollywood forever.
With all the charm, romance, comedy and tinsel town glamour of one of the world’s best-loved films, and songs include Good Morning, Make ‘Em Laugh, Lucky Star and – of course – Singin’ in the Rain, this show promises a magical night of musical theatre. Add to that the excitement and adrenaline that comes with Showtime Challenge: 48-Hour Musicals productions, and you’re in for a truly electric evening.
