Singin' In The Rain

Betty Comden, Adolph Green, Arthur Freed, Nacio Herb Brown

Please click on the words 'Content warning' above to see a list of content notes

Singin’ in the Rain brings to you the classic, golden-age movie musical adapted for the stage, originally starring Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly, including some of the best-loved comedy routines, toe-tapping dance numbers, and love songs: Good Mornin’, Make ‘em Laugh, Broadway Melody, and the show-stopping number Singin’ in the Rain.

The musical captures the monumental Hollywood movie transition from silent pictures to the new ‘talkies’, following film co-stars Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont. When Monumental Studios turns silent
The Dueling Cavalier into The Dancing Cavalier, they are faced with a problem – Lina’s shrill and squeaky voice which might just end her career. As Kathy Selden, an aspiring actress, steps in to save the studio, she begins to fall in love, leaving Don Lockwood with difficult decisions both on and off screen.

Pouring with laughs, charm, romance, and wit, expect high-energy dance routines and classic songs from the movie, added with its spectacular stage effects, including rain!

This performance is recommended for audiences of all ages

The matinée on Thursday 24 March will be a relaxed performance. Find out more information about our relaxed performances here.

This amateur production of Singin' In The Rain is presented by an arrangement with MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL (Europe).

ADC Theatre



The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 


When you arrive at the ADC Theatre, there are power assisted doors to the Box Office. In the foyer there is a lift which leads up to the bar and auditorium. The accessible toilet is located on the ground floor across the foyer.
