Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston presents:
Singin' in the Rain

Robinson Theatre
617 Lexington Street, Waltham
781-891-5600 |

Experience all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood’s golden age: It’s 1927, and Don Lockwood and Lina LaMont are the toast of the town until “talkies” come on the scene. Furthermore, Don’s romance with the lovely and talented Kathy Selden only complicates things further. Big romance, big song and dance numbers, and a big, splashy Hollywood ending - and it really rains on stage!  What a glorious feeling, indeed!
