The Ocean City Theatre Company’s Junior Company will present Singin’ In The Rain Jr. on Aug. 24th and 25th at the Ocean City Music Pier. Show times are 7:30 p.m. This fully staged production will feature a cast of select fifth to eighth grade students from across the Delaware Valley.
The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin’ In The Rain Jr. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make the musical a guaranteed good time for all.
Singin’ In The Rain Jr. has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers. In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen. Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.
Tickets for Singin’ In The Rain Jr. range from $12-$15. To purchase tickets, call 609-399-6111 or visit www.oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice.
