   A great film musical is being presented live on a historic stage in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Singin’ in the Rain, the MGM classic, is the holiday faire at the Fulton Theatre, running November 28th – December 29th.

   Adapted from the screenplay by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, with memorable tunes from Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, this production is presented by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc., and music published by EMI. The Fulton promises to let it rain on stage with hundreds  of gallons of water each night. If you opt to sit in the front four rows (the splash zone), they will offer a rain poncho. You can really feel part of the action. Embark on a dance-filled journey to Hollywood’s Golden Age.

   The Fulton Theatre has provided exceptional original live productions over the last decade. Many have been adapted from an immense wealth that cinema often provides, including The Lion in Winter, My Fair Lady, A Man for All Seasons, Inherit the Wind, The Music Man, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Oliver!, Bus Stop, West Side Story42nd Street, The King and I, Gaslight, Dial “M” for Murder, Fiddler on the Roof, Driving Miss Daisy, The 39 Steps, and earlier in the month, Witness for the Prosecution.

   The Fulton Theatre is located at 12 N. Prince Street. One of the founding members of the  League of Historic American Theatres, it also belongs to the National Association of Musical Theatres (NAMT) and the International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People. The Fulton Opera House Foundation is a not-for-profit public charity existing to engage the public with exceptional theatre experiences that honor, preserve, and extend the Fulton’s role as a National Historic Landmark.

   Exuberant, funny, and filled with songs you know and love, it sounds like the must-see show in Lancaster. Cue the whistler…

Until next time>                               “never forget”
