The local theatre company is bringing the iconic show to the Gaiety Theatre stage from 5th â€“ 17th August, and with buckets of hilarity, snappy dialogue and a smash hit soundtrack, it promises to be a hit for all the family.
Set in Hollywood in the days of the silent screen era, the story focuses on romantic lead Don Lockwood, played by Danny Becker who is currently Aladdinâ€™s understudy in Aladdin the Musical on Londonâ€™s West End and is making his Gaiety stage debut. His sidekick Cosmo Brown will be played by the brilliantly talented Josh Barnett, while aspiring actress Kathy Selden will be portrayed by the equally accomplished local performer Laura Pigott, following on from her leading role in last yearâ€™s production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.Â The main cast is rounded off by Lockwood's leading lady Lina Lamont, who will be brought to life by Lisa Kreisky, another experienced actress who is well-known in the local arts scene. Â

â€˜Singinâ€™ in The Rain is a highly prized show, featuring a feel-good story and lively musical numbers, and weâ€™re really looking forward to Taylorian taking to the stage. It promises to be a highly entertaining production and a wonderful opportunity for all involved, both on stage and behind the scenes, to gain experience, develop new skills and showcase their talents.â€™
Matt James, Producer of Taylorian Productions, added: â€˜Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, Singin' in the Rain is the must-see show of the summer and we canâ€™t wait to take it away next month!
