“Singin’ in the Rain” Plays at Revere

The talented cast from Revere’s musical will entertain you.

Time to support local youth who are engaging in worthwhile pursuits. Not only is it easy to do, but attending this show promises to be hugely entertaining. For the next two weekends, more than 40 Paul Revere Middle School students will be performing the musical Singin in the Rain.

Directed by Lara Ganz, who always coaxes the most exceptional performances from her young actors, there will be 13 performances in the Paul Revere Auditorium, 1450 Allenford Avenue.

For seniors, who don’t like to drive at night, or for parents who have young children with early bedtimes, there are numerous matinees.

Shows are Friday, April 5 and 12 at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 6 at 1 and 5:30 p.m., Sunday, April 7 at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 11 at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 13 at noon and 4:30 p.m.

The musical is based on the beloved movie, Singin’ in The Rain and takes place in Hollywood during the last days of the silent movie era.

When the transition is being made from silent films to `talkies’, actors have to adapt. Don and Lina have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part.

After a lot of practice with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Don has to undertake extreme measures to save his first talking picture from Lina’s less than glamorous voice. Luckily Kathy, a talented, bright young actress might be the answer.

An actress tries to make the switch from silent pictures to “talkies” in “Singin in the Rain.”
