The Canfield Players Drama Club will present “Singin’ in the Rain” as the fall musical at Canfield High School at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 17 and 18. There will also be a matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 19.
Under the direction of Dr. Becky Heikkinen, the show will feature about 50 students from the drama club.
“Singin’ in the Rain” is set in 1927, and Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a famous on-screen romantic pair. Lina, however, mistakes the on-screen romance for real love. Don has worked hard to get where he is with his former partner Cosmo. When Don and Lina’s latest film is transformed into a musical, Don has the perfect voice for the songs. But Lina’s voice is not fit for film, so Kathy Selden is brought in to dub her scenes. While she is working on the movie, Don falls in love with her. When the jealous Lina finds out the strategy of the studio, she does not want to share the credits.
Ticket costs are $15 for adults and $10 for students. Reserved seating tickets are available by calling the ticket line at 330-702-7128. A special discount of $10 per seat is available to groups of ten or more for the Sunday matinee performance.
In the event that the Canfield football team is in a playoff game on Nov. 17, the opening night will be moved to Nov. 16 and all tickets for the Friday performance will be honored on Thursday. Patrons can check the status on Nov. 13 by calling the ticket line at 330-702-7128.
