After a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Jonathan Church’s production of Singin’ in the Rain will transfer to the Palace Theatre on Tuesday, February 4, 2012.

The show is booking at the Palace Theatre from February 4 initially through to September 29. The production opens on Tuesday, February 15, and tickets went on public sale on September 26 this year.

The show is based on the classic 1952 MGM film and stars Adam Cooper as Don Lockwood, a silent movies star with everything he could want – fame, adulation and even a well-publicised ‘romance’ with his co-star Lina Lamont (played by Katherine Kingsley). But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the studio of a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk, sing and dance.

With all the charm, romance, comedy and tinsel town glamour of one of the world’s best-loved films, Jonathan Church’s brand new production features a glorious score including the classics Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the legendary Singin’ in the Rain.

Group bookings have variable savings depending on group size and promptness of booking. When booking by December 9, 2011, groups of 10 or more pay £35.00 per ticket, while groups of 40+ pay £29.50. From December 10 onwards, rates go up to £45.00 for groups of 10+ and £39.50 for groups of 40+, though this is still less than the stall and dress circle ticket price of £55-60. Groups of six to nine pay £48 per ticket. All group rates are available Monday to Friday.
