COMES TO THE ALHAMBRA
A smash hit in Chichester, in the West End and most recently Sadler’s Wells Singin’ in
the Rain, comes to The Alhambra, Bradford from 11th – 16th July.
The plot revolves around Don Lockwood a silent movie star with everything he could want – fame, adulation and a well-publicised
‘romance’ with his co-star Lina Lamont. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the
studio of a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk … and sing … and dance. Can Don and the
uniquely voiced Lina make the transition, and will chorus girl Kathy Selden fulfil her dream of stardom and
capture Don’s heart along the way?
Singin’ in the Rain features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, including Make ‘em Laugh,
Good Morning, Moses Supposes and Singin’ in the Rain. Original screenplay and adaptations are by Betty
Comden and Adolph Green.
This production of Singin’ in the Rain opened at Chichester Festival Theatre and extended due to
unprecedented public demand, before a transfer to London which received huge critical acclaim and four
Olivier Award nominations.
It played to more than 750,000 people…. some leaving the theatre a little wetter than when they arrived!
The iconic rain scenes:
Use 6k litres of water, equivalent to 5 tonnes (here’s a list of things which also weigh 5 tonnes:
2 Rhinos, 11 Grand Pianos or 30 Panda Bears!)
Uses over 100 metres of heavy-duty rubber hose
Takes 15 minutes to drain. Afterwards, it is recovered, it is then recycled, cleaned and used again
Heats the water to 37 degrees for performer comfort!
The stage production of Singin’ in the Rain is based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film, regularly
voted the most popular film musical of all time.
