Lubbock Moonlight Musicals Readies for "Rain"

"Singin' In The Rain"
- Fridays/Saturdays, June 13-14; 20-21; 27-28

Based on the 1952 MGM film starring Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor & Debbie Reynolds
Screenplay by: Betty Comden & Adolph Green
Music by: Nacio Herb Brown; Lyrics by: Arthur Freed

Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the darlings of the silent silver screen. Off-screen, Don, aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist, Cosmo Brown, has to dodge Lina's romantic overtures, especially when he falls for chorus girl Kathy Selden. With the advent of sound in motion pictures, it is decided to turn Don and Lina's new film into a talkie, and a musical at that. The only problem is Lina's voice, which mere words cannot describe. Thus, Kathy is brought on to dub her speaking and singing voice in secret, and Don's on top of the world -- until Lina finds out. The show includes show-stopping dances Singin’ in the Rain and Make ‘em Laugh.

Lubbock Moonlight Musicals productions are presented on Friday and Saturday evenings at the outdoor Wells Fargo Amphitheatre in Mackenzie Park. Gates open at 7 p.m. for picnics. Shows start at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available at the gate and at all Select-a-Seat outlets, by phone at 1-800-735-1288 or (806) 770-2000.
