Grab your raincoat and head to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre for an iconic MGM classic musical that is sure to leave you happy again!
The fast-paced, beloved romantic comedy Singin' in the Rain bursts onto the Theatre's stage January 8 - 27. Overflowing with splashy song-and-dance numbers, this high-energy musical extravaganza features glorious songs such as "Good Morning" and "Make 'Em Laugh," as well as the show-stopping title number, "Singin' In the Rain," complete with an onstage rainstorm.
"This is the first time in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre's history that we are creating a full rainstorm onstage, and the effects will be dazzling," said the Theatre's producing artistic director, Andrew Kato. "We are delighted to be bringing such a magical musical to life, right here in Jupiter."
Theatre patrons seated in the first four rows - or designated "splash zone" - will be given complimentary ponchos prior to each performance to protect their clothing from the possibility of being splashed.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the classic MGM film that inspired the musical. Singin' in the Rain follows silent movie star Don Lockwood who has everything he could ever want: fame, adulation and even a well-publicized romance with his co-star Lina Lamont. But hilarity ensues when a new kind of film alters everything: the kind of film where actors talk, sing... and even dance!
"I have directed this show six times before, but I have never had the opportunity to produce it exactly as I wanted," said director and choreographer Marc Robin, who last directed the Carbonell-nominated musical The Sound of Music at the Theatre. "I am so excited because for the first time, I have the ability to spread the rain effect over the entire stage, not to mention having the absolute best cast a director could ask for."
The golden age of movie musicals comes alive with an eight-piece orchestra, as well as the debut of three black-and-white mini-films, seen in the creation stages and also screened onstage as part of the musical.
This production stars Curt Dale Clark as Don Lockwood (Sunset Boulevard, Hairspray, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Spamalot), Lauren Blackman as Kathy Seldon (Off Broadway: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Next Thing You Know), Brian Shepard as CosMo Brown (Broadway: Follies, Guys and Dolls, Young Frankenstein, Spamalot) and Emily Stockdale as Lina Lamont (Geva Theater, NY Philharmonic's Company).
Singin' in the Rain is produced as a co-production with the Fulton Theatre in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Singin' in the Rain is sponsored by the John McDonald Company and California Closets. Tickets are now on sale for the theatre's entire 10th Anniversary season. For a complete schedule and tickets, call (561) 575-2223 or visitwww.jupitertheatre.org.
