Hamilton Players ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ Kicks Off its Second Weekend
Ticket sales have been "brisk" for the Hamilton Players production of "Singin' in the Rain."
That means the seats are filling fast for performances this weekend and next at the Hamilton Playhouse. The box office has been busy between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. But you can also get your tickets online at the Hamilton Players website.
The play was produced for the stage after the popular Gene Kelly Hollywood film. When it opened, there were extras - for instance, songs had been added that were originally planned for the movie but were cut for time. The plot concerns the switch in Hollywood from silent film to sound. In the Hamilton production, Austin Athman created a couple of special videos to recreate a silent film and to show an early "talkie."
The show runs June 19 and 20 at 8 p.m. and June 21 at 2 p.m. Next week, the Friday and Saturday shows are again at 8 p.m. and the final performance will be the Sunday 2 p.m. matinee.
