Singin' In the Rain at the Historic Palace Theatre!

The movie is a classic for a reason! Bring your kids to see this marvelous live production of Singin' In the Rain at the Historic Palace Theatre! Don Lockwood is a silent film star with humble roots as a musician, dancer and stunt man. Don barely tolerates his vapid leading lady, Lina Lamont, who is convinced that their screen romance is real. After the first talking picture, The Jazz Singer, proves to be a smash hit, the head of the studio, R. F. Simpson, decides he has no choice but to convert the new Lockwood and Lamont film, The Dueling Cavalier, into a talkie. The production is beset with difficulties, by far the worst being Lina’s comically grating voice. Thankfully, his old pal Cosmo Brown and the talented Kathy Selden have a brilliant plan to save the Dueling Cavalier!
