Kilworth House Theatre has announce casting for their summer production of the musical classic Singin’ In The Rain.

Following the tremendous success of Hairspray in 2023, the same creative team is set to dazzle audiences once more at the picturesque outdoor Celia Mackay Theatre in South Leicestershire. The show will run from 18 June – 28 July 2024.

The cast features Jack Wilcox as Don Lockwood, Jess Buckby as Lina Lamont, Lucie-Mae Sumner as Kathy Selden, and Alastair Crosswell as Cosmo Brown. Mark Curry will take on the role of RF Simpson.

The ensemble includes Julia J Nagle playing Miss Dinsmore/Dora Bailey, Jacob Fisher as the Production Tenor, and Joel Wilding as Roscoe Dexter.

Additional ensemble members are Rachel Rawlinson, Austin Garrett, Sophie Cambel, Will Carey, Emma-Katie Adcock, Sam Brown, Imogen Bowtell, Isaac Elder, Esme Kennedy, Michael Dean Wilson, Jessica Sutton, Matthew Maddison, and Ellie Stevens.

Singin’ In The Rain, set in the golden era of Hollywood in the 1920s, showcases the transition from silent films to “talkies,” weaving a tale around iconic characters like the suave Don Lockwood, his comical sidekick Cosmo Brown, the enchanting Kathy Selden, and the vocally challenged Lina Lamont.

Featuring beloved songs such as “Good Morning,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” and the legendary “Singin’ in the Rain,” this production is a homage to one of the most cherished movie musicals of all time.

The creative team includes Celia Mackay as producer, Lee Proud as director and choreographer, and Michael Bradley handling musical supervision and direction. Simon Wells is responsible for set and costume design, Jason Taylor for lighting design, and Chris Whybrow for sound design. Charlotte Gayle serves as associate choreographer, Bob Broad as associate musical director, and Sophie Camble takes on the roles of dance captain and resident director. The casting is managed by Anne Vosser Casting.
