To celebrate its 100th year, Norfolk and Norwich Operatic Society (NNOS) is delighted to announce Singin’ in the Rain as their 2025 production. This musical adapted for the stage from the golden-age movie of the same name comes to Norwich Theatre Royal between 28 Jan – 1 Feb 25.
Pouring with laughs, charm, romance, and wit, expect high-energy dance routines and classic songs from the movie. This is the perfect way to celebrate the NNOS centenary.
Singin’ in the Rain captures the Hollywood movie transition from silent pictures to the new talkies, following film co-stars Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont. When Monumental Studios turns silent film, The Dueling Cavalier into the all-singing, all-dancing 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.
The show features some of the best-loved comedy routines ever, plus toe-tapping dance numbers and classic musical theatre songs, including Good Mornin’, Make ‘em Laugh, Broadway Melody, and the show-stopping title number, Singin’ in the Rain.
