The cast for Kilworth House Theatre’s ninth summer
series of concerts includes a wealth of West End experience.
Singin’ in the Rain is starting a 32-date run at the pretty North Kilworth outdoor venue on Wednesday, June 3.
The series has become a much-anticipated fixture in the district’s entertainment calendar and has drawn national praise in recent years, with mentions in The Sunday Times, among others.
An incredible 25,000 tickets were booked – with a number of performances sold out – in just the first four weeks of sales for this year’s series.
Singin’ in the Rain, which runs until Sunday, July 19, is a light-hearted spoof set in Hollywood in the 1920s, and will be packed full of charm, romance and Tinseltown glamour.
It will feature all the songs from the glorious 1952 MGM score including Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, You Stepped Out of a Dream, You Are My Lucky Star and the show-stopping Singin’ In The Rain.
The four lead roles for the show, announced last week, are Graham MacDuff as Don Lockwood, Carolyn Maitland as Kathy Seldon, Adam Margilewski who plays Cosmo Brown and Jenny Gayner as Lina Lamont.
Graham has appeared in many West End shows including Carousel, Spamalot and Guys and Dolls, and his TV work includes Down To Earth and Hollyoaks.
Carolyn has been in many West End shows including Miss Saigon and From Here To Eternity and has been a lead vocalist on board the ocean liner QE2.
Adam was in a West End production of Singin’ in the Rain and has recently been touring in Cameron Macintosh’s production of Barnum.
And Jenny has appeared in many West End shows including Chicago and Spamalot and last year played the role of Gillian Taylforth in The Trial of Gillian Taylforth on Channel 5.
Tickets cost £30 to £38 and for availability call the box office on 01858 881939 or visit website www.kilworth housetheatre.co.uk.
The outdoor venue features a swooping, sail-like canopy to guard against the weather.
Kilworth’s second show of the summer is the musical comedy Legally Blonde, which will run from August 20 until September 20.
