1920s silent-film star falls for a spunky chorus girl, much to the dismay of his diva-ish leading lady, in this lighthearted musical spoof of the early days of Hollywood. Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O'Connor star in Singin' in the Rain (1952), one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed — filled with memorable songs, lavish routines, and Kelly's fabulous song-and-dance number performed in the rain.

Set during the advent of "talkies," Don Lockwood (Kelly) has risen to stardom during Hollywood's silent-movie era—paired with the beautiful, jealous and dumb Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen in her Oscar-nominated performance). And when Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden (Reynolds), Lamont has her fired.

But with the introduction of talking pictures, Lockwood finds his career in jeopardy after audiences laugh when they hear Lamont speak in her shrill voice for the first time...until the studio decides to use Selden to dub her voice.

Singin' in the Rain has remained one of cinema's most beloved and celebrated musicals, inspiring audiences for over sixty years as a classic from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Rated G for General Audiences.

This event is non-ticketed, including for the covered seating area. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows goes on rain or shine.
