"Singin’ in the Rain" will be TJC’s spring musical and those in the know confirm that, yes, there’s a hundred-percent chance of rain onstage in Wise Auditorium.
The show is scheduled to run 7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, Feb. 24-27.
Based on the classic MGM movie musical, "Singin’ in the Rain" features some of the most memorable song-and-dance numbers of Hollywood’s Golden Age, including "You Are My Lucky Star", "Make’Em Laugh", "Broadway Rhythm" and, of course, the title song.
The TJC production is under the stage direction of Rebecca Faulds, with musical direction by Andrea Trent and choreography by Debbie Morton.
Set concept and design is by Denise Weatherly-Green and constructed by TJC technical theater students, who must build the set so that it must rain, drain and be ready for the scenes following the one in which the actors sing and dance in an on-stage deluge.
All seats are $5. Box office hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday. For reservations or production information, call 903-510-2212.
