Lees-McRae Summer Theatre presents “Singin’ in the Rain” Aug. 4 to 10.
“When I was a child, my mom took me to see ‘Singin’ in the Rain,’ and I was hooked,” Dr. Janet Barton Speer, director and founder of Lees-McRae Summer Theatre. “It has been my dream to direct it, but I had to find just the right people to pull it off. Now, we have the team that can produce this musical classic.”
1920s Hollywood is the setting for this zany, light-hearted romantic comedy about the early days of sound film, when many a movie studio found itself scrambling to salvage the career of its chipmunk-voiced silent picture star.
“Singin’ in the Rain” will be performed Aug. 5, 7, 8 and 9 at 7 p.m., and Aug. 4, 8 and 10 at 2 p.m. at the Broyhill Theatre in Hayes Auditorium on the LMC campus in Banner Elk.
Tickets may be purchased online at http://www.lmst.lmc.edu or at the Hayes Auditorium box office.
