A group of veteran show girls and boys meet in the
Broadway theatre where they once performed for a
reunion party before its knocked down to make way for
a car park.
Having lost touch over the years, its not long before
they’re recalling the past, and are reunited with their
memories of their younger selves.
A beautiful and gently humorous story is illustrated
with Sondheim’s score, including songs such as
“Beautiful Girls”, “Broadway Baby” and “Losing my

RAOS are excited to announce their 2014 show as Singin’
in the Rain.
Having stormed the West End it is Harrogate Theatre’s
turn to play host to this wonderful show.
It’s the roaring ’20s and silent movie stars are the biggest
names in the world. Don Lockwood has it all, a string of hit
films and a studio-engineered romance with the most
beautiful actress in town. But with the new phenomenon of
the talking picture on the way and a chance meeting with
a talented young chorus girl set to steal his heart, things
are about to change for Don and for Hollywood forever.
With all the charm, romance, comedy and tinsel town glamour of one of the world’s best-loved films, this production
will include the classics Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the legendary Singin’ in the Rain.
Watch this space or join our mailing list for details about the first rehearsal which will take place after our
October concert later in 2013.
