Lakewood Theatre Company closes out its 66th season with the triumphant movie musical Singin’ In the Rain, tapping its way from the cinema to the Headlee Mainstage. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a downpour of unforgettable songs make Singin’ in the Rain the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie musicals.


The Story: Don Lockwood (John David Scott) is at the height of his career as a silent film star, having starred in several successful movies with the beautiful, but shallow and vain Lina Lamont (Stephanie Willing-Heuston). Don can barely tolerate Lina, even though their studio, Monumental Pictures, has set them up in the eyes of the press as an “it” couple.

But as Don continues his picture career, Hollywood is moving fast into the era of “talking pictures” - movies with sound instead of subtitles. To keep up, Monumental Pictures and its head, R.F. Simpson (Mike Dederian) decide to adapt the latest Lockwood-Lamont vehicle into a musical. Unfortunately for Lina, her screechy voice threatens her move into the talkies – until Don and his tap-dancing friend Cosmo Brown (Dennis Corwin) convince Kathy Selden (Catherine Olson), an aspiring actress with the voice of an angel, to dub over her voice.

This splashy adaptation also features Lalanya Gunn as Miss Phoebe Dinsmore, Richard Cohn-Lee as Roscoe Dexter, Terra Hill as Dora Bailey, Danny Captuo as the Diction Coach, Tara Beanblossom as Roz, Jorie Jones as Zelda Zanders,  Jon Gennari as Sid Phillips, Robert Altieri as the Cameraman, Maria Tucker as Olga Mara. The ensemble features Lorna Baxter, Caroline D’Ambrosi, John Gaunt, Jared Lingle, Crystal Munoz, Grace Thompson and Jackson Wells.
