Singin' in the Rain Adds Extra Wellington Date

Due to popular demand, an extra performance has been added to the Wellington season of the stage spectacular, Singin' in the Rain.

The extra performance date is cheduled for Tuesday 14th April, with the season closing on Sunday 26th April before heading to Auckland for their run at the Civic starting May 1st.

Set in 1927, it tells the story, made famous by Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds in the iconic 1952 MGM movie, of the first Hollywood musical, when the silver screen found its voice and left silent movies – and some of its stars – behind. 

For the famous Singin' in the Rain scene (which uses recycled water), half a mile of flexible pipe work, a 10 tonne water tank and a specially waterproofed show deck has been created, which allows the water to rain down from above and flood the stage.

Singin' in the Rain
Wellington - 14-26 April, St James Theatre
Auckland - 1-17 May, The Civic
