The smash hit West End Production of Singin In The Rain is tour the UK early next year, stopping off at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from February 4-15.

Singin’ In The Rain will star stage and screen leading man Maxwell Caulfield as studio boss R.F. Simpson and pop legend Faye Tozer, from Steps, as starlet Lina Lamont.

Maxwell Caulfield said :“I am beyond thrilled to be hitting the road with Singin’ in the Rain. As a huge fan of the original movie, the chance to bring this story to life on stage is something I couldn’t pass up and it’ll be great visiting some of the beautiful theatres on the tour, some I’ve been to previously, some are going to be a brand new experience for me.”

Faye Tozer added: “I am thrilled to take on the part of Lina Lamont in this classic musical. I’ve always adored the Singin’ in the Rain movie and love the glamour and glitz of Hollywood in the 20s, so to get to deliver some of Lina’s absolutely hilarious dialogue live on stage is dream come true. The beautiful costumes I get to wear are a bonus too! 

“Having toured around the country both with many theatre productions and of course with Steps, I’m also very excited to visit Nottingham with this show.”
