JRT’s ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ is coming to town

Tap your toes and sing along as Jonesborough Repertory Theatre brings the splashy adaptation of the celebrated and beloved film, “Singin’ In the Rain” to the stage Jan. 22 – Feb. 15.
“Singin’ In The Rain” has all the spicy details of a Hollywood headline with a starlet, a leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers. In a time of silent films, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a popular couple, but behind the scenes things aren’t always as they seem on film. Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career, without the help of a new young actress who is willing to do the talking and singing for her.
Filled with every cherished moment from the film and a handful of unforgettable songs, “Singin’ In The Rain” is a timeless success that will leave the audience tapping and clapping to the beat.
