by Becky Petchenik

Aug. 5, 2013 Rounding out their Summer Theatre season, Lees-McRae College will present their stage adaption of the beloved musical “Singin’ in the Rain” at the Broyhill Theatre of the Hayes Auditorium in Banner Elk. Scheduled for Aug 4-10, tickets will range from $20 to $40. The show runs Aug 5, 7, 8 and 9 at 7 p.m. with matinees on August 4, 8 and 10 at 2 p.m. 


Set in 1920s Hollywood, this cheery and whimsical comedy about the early days of sound film follows silent movie star with roots as a singer, dancer and stuntman Don Lockwood as he tries to make it in the budding business of the Hollywood Motion Picture.  With studio rivalries and romance running rampant, this heartfelt musical is sure to touch the hearts of young and old alike.

Director of the play and founder of the Lees-McRae Summer Theatre program, Dr. Janet Barton Speer has been attempting to put on the play for a while but has only just now found the right cast and crew to put on an adaptation of a film so close to her heart.
