Production Information

Singin' in the Rain JR.

Screenplay by Betty Comden & Adolph Green

Songs by Arthur Freed & Nacio Herb Brown

Based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film, by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc.

Original Story and Screenplay by Richard Morris for the Universal Pictures Film The "Greatest Movie Musical of All Time" is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin' in the Rain JR. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin' in the Rain JR. a guaranteed good time for performers and audience members alike.

Singin' in the Rain JR. has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline—the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.

Junior Theater Festival - January 13, 14 & 15, 2017

The Junior Theater Festival began in 2003 as a way to celebrate and encourage students and teachers who are presenting musicals in their schools and communities. Each year, participating groups seem to bring even more creativity, enthusiasm and joy to this event, and in turn, iTheatrics responds by creating more opportunities and experiences. As of 2010, the Junior Theater Festival has become an annual event.

The festival brings together people from all aspects of theatre, ranging from students and teachers to Broadway professionals, under one roof to celebrate outstanding student musical theatre productions.

The festival offers an enthusiastic environment for students and teachers to interact with thousands of others who share their passion for musical theatre. Each group attending performs a selection from a Broadway Junior or KIDS Collection musical for professional adjudication by a distinguished panel of international theatre professionals. Groups participate in interactive workshops lead by Broadway and West End professionals.

Performances - May 4, 5 & 6, 2017

The entire show will be performed at CCM May 4 (7:00), May 5 (7:00), and May 6 (3:00) in CCM’s Cohen Family Studio Theater. Other opportunities for the students to perform selections from the show will be explored throughout the year.
