There will be rain coming down this fall at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. But not on the roof â€“ itâ€™s on the stage! The refreshing, romantic comedy Singinâ€™ In The Rain â€“ the stage version of one of MGM’s most celebrated films â€“ pours onto the Beef & Boards stage for performances from September. 1 through October. 9.
Set in 1920s Hollywood, this classic is the story of Don Lockwood, a famous actor in silent films. His success is shared by his co-star, Lina Lamont, but â€“ at least for DonÂ â€“ their romance is only for the screen. When they star in their first talking movie, Linaâ€™s grating voice causes studio executives to arrange for the voice of the beautiful young actress, Kathy Selden, to be used instead. Although the movie is successful, Lina is furious. While Don has eyes for the lovely Kathy, Lina isnâ€™t about to be pushed aside â€“ on screen, or off.
Timothy Ford returns to Beef & Boards to reprise his 2006 role as Don Lockwood, while Sara Brophy plays his love interest, Kathy Selden. Beef & Boards favorites Sarah Hund and Doug King play the roles of Lina Lamont and Cosmo Brown (Don Lockwoodâ€™s zany friend and sidekick).
There are 47 performances of Singinâ€™ In The Rain scheduled in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $36 to $59, and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, coffee, tea and lemonade. Discounts are available for children and groups of 20 or more and parking is free.
