The splash-hit West End stage production SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN, starring Jack Chambers, Gretel Scarlett and Erika Heynatz, will splash-down in Adelaide at the Festival Theatre previewing from 1 December for a limited season. It will be the first time in almost fifteen years that a production of the show has been seen on the main stage in Adelaide.
Accomplished performers Grant Almirall and Rohan Browne will share the role of Don Lockwood in a production that has been hailed by critics and audiences alike.
In the role of Don Lockwood’s sidekick Cosmo Brown is the dynamic Jack Chambers. Earning a place in Australian entertainment history when he won the first So You Think You Can Dance in 2008, Jack went on to spend 14 months in New York working as a choreographer and teacher at the prestigious Joffrey Ballet School, returning to Australia to star as Link Larkin in Hairspray the Musical. The role of aspiring actress Kathy Selden will be played by the extraordinary Gretel Scarlett, star of Grease, Wicked and Mamma Mia! One of Australia’s emerging leading ladies, Gretel was a finalist in 2011’s ‘ANZ Trustees Rob Guest Endowment Award’ and last year released her debut album Hopelessly Devoted.
Erika Heynatz, nominated for a Helpmann Award for her role as Brooke Windham in Legally Blonde and earning rave reviews for her portrayal of Magenta in The Rocky Horror Show, plays Lockwood’s vapid leading lady, Lina Lamont. With a comprehensive and full career that spans more than forty years, Robyn Arthur joins this stellar cast as Hollywood gossip reporter, Dora Bailey.
Produced in Australia by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, Michael Cassel Group, David Atkins Enterprises and Dainty Group International, the popular musical will thrill audiences as they experience high-octane choreography, sumptuous sets and costumes and the exhilarating spectacle of rain live on stage!
