About Singin' in the Rain

Hollywood, California, 1927. Silent movies are becoming a thing of the past and "talkies" are all the rage. Audiences expect beautiful actresses have voices to match, so when Monumental Studios' biggest star, Lina Lamont, is found lacking vocally, something must be done. With timeless music and dancing – and a song guaranteed to "make 'em laugh" – audiences will have that glorious feeling akin to singing in the rain.

About The Playhouse

The Playhouse vision, as Iowa's largest producing theatre, is to be a vital part of a collaborative, energized, and engaged community that values art in its culture, particularly because of the contributions of high-quality avocational, educational, and entertaining theatre experiences. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
