19:45, Tue 21st – Sat 25th February 2006 at Cambridge Arts Theatre
Lent Week 5
Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society is proud to present a sprightly adaptation of the all-time classic musical Singin’ in the Rain. Set in 1927, it satirizes the momentous and painful period in Hollywood movie history when ‘talkies’ took over from silent pictures.
Lina Lamont – the temperamental Queen of the Silver Screen – has but one problem during such a transition: a shrill and squeaky New York accent. As her career faces troubled waters, Kathy Selden steps in to help save this fading star, only to fall in love with Lina’s co-actor Don Lockwood. Professional and personal tensions rise as Don faces difficult decisions both on and off screen. Guaranteed to set your feet tapping, join CUMTS as they return to the Cambridge Arts' Theatre Stage with this musical extravaganza.
