“Singin’ In The Rain”, the musical, is currently in town and we had the chance to check it out. This splash-hit musical has arrived along with its 12,000 litres of water and iconic dance routines that are an absolute delight for all watching. With so many bright and colourful elements and the epic splash created by all that water, there isn’t a moment were the kids could possibly get bored!
Growing up as a dancer, one of my favourite things to do was to go and see the latest musical touring Sydney. When living in London for a period of time I also made sure I went to a musical as often as I could, taking full advantage of living close to London’s West End! The inspiration and sheer delight after watching the performers was exactly what this dancer needed. Now I’m a ‘Dance Mum’ and I want my daughter to share that magical place a musical takes you to and keep her dance dream alive too.
The joyful story is easy to follow and you’ll fall in love with the characters and their amazing costumes! There were also so many laugh-out-loud moments that my 6 year old absolutely cracked up at! The show is suitable for kids with only a few moments of kissing between the main characters. This didn’t seem to both my little Miss as she just giggled at Cosmo Brown who was clearly the third wheel in this relationship.
The music was so good for the soul with hits from the iconic “Singin’ In The Rain” movie such as “Good Morning”, “Make ‘em Laugh” and, of course, “Singin’ In The Rain”. Along with the amazing songs was the energetic and captivating choreography first made famous by the original cast of the movie, Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. My little Miss’ feet would not stop shuffling through out the whole show and she has danced around the lounge room today with the original soundtrack on repeat!

Now if you’re up for getting right up close with the show then I totally recommend you book tickets in the first 3 rows, but beware; they are in the ‘splash zone’ and you will be issued with a poncho to wear throughout the show! I’m sure the kids would love the ‘splash’ element.
“Singin’ In The Rain” is now showing at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre with tickets starting from $74.90.
The show is also touring Brisbane from September 2016 and then onto Adelaide from the 1st December 2016 followed by Perth from the 29th December 2016.
I highly recommend you go and see “Singin’ In The Rain” and take the kids. Why not grab the opportunity to take them to a show that not only they will love, but so will you. You too could be that parent walking out of the theatre with your child singing at the top of their lungs!
