Making a splash from the moment it premiered, this sensational production of Singin’ in the Rain extended its run in Chichester UK due to unprecedented public demand, before transferring to the famous Palace Theatre in London. Now, after a sell-out West End season, unparalleled praise from critics and audiences alike, four Olivier Award nominations, and a major UK tour, Singin’ in the Rain is set to delight Australian audiences.
This spectacular show is packed full of the charm, romance, comedy and tinseltown glamour of one of the world’s best-loved movies. It tells the story of the first Hollywood musical, when the silver screen found its voice and left silent movies – and some of its stars – behind.
As well as glorious songs including Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the classic Singin’ in the Rain, the movie’s choreography is brought to life, and with the help of 12,000 litres of water, the audience can enjoy one of the most iconic dance routines live on stage.
With its joyous story and sumptuous set design and costumes, Singin’ in the Rain showers you with everything you could wish for in a hit musical!
- 6,000 litres of water are used each time it rains on stage – 2,000 falling from above and 4,000 flooding from below. It rains twice during each performance, so that’s 12,000 litres of water in total.
- Don’t worry, it’s all recycled! The water drains back into a reservoir. When full it holds 10,000 litres.
- There’s also a treatment plant where the water is filtered and treated to prevent bacteria developing.
- The water is heated to 30 degrees. It has to travel through a quarter of a mile of pipes to fall from above, which means it can take a little while to warm up!
