BABIRRA MUSIC THEATRE Inc.

We are excited to announce auditions for our June 2018 production of:

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

Singin’ in the Rain is the most famous, and judged by many to be the best, movie musical of all time, set in Hollywood in the 1920’s, a time when silent pictures were giving way to the “talkies”. This is a light-hearted spoof of a frantic Hollywood, as the advent of sound changes all the movie-making rules, when many a movie studio found itself scrambling to salvage the career of its chipmunk-voiced silent picture star. It includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers and love ballads ever written. The MGM classic has been faithfully and lovingly adapted, with each unforgettable scene present and accounted for, including the show stopping title number, complete with an onstage rainstorm! With a vintage score and book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Singin’ in the Rain is 24 carat classic entertainment.
