Max Clayton, Christian Probst, Kate Loprest and More Will Lead SINGIN' IN THE RAIN at Ogunquit Playhouse Ogunquit Playhouse, the cultural hub of Maine’s Southern Seacoast, is proud to announce casting for the stage adaptation of the classic MGM movie musical Singin’ in the Rain (June 15 – July 15).

Singin’ in the Rain will star Max Clayton (Broadway: The Music Man 2022 revival, Moulin Rouge!) as Don Lockwood, Christian Probst (Broadway: The Book of Mormon, Bad Cinderella; The Muny: Bye, Bye, Birdie) as Cosmo Brown, Chiara Trentalange (Broadway: Girl from the North Country; Barrington Stage Co: The Royal Family of Broadway) as Kathy Selden, Greg Jackson (Broadway: A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder; The Lion King North American Tour) as Roscoe Dexter, Kate Loprest (Broadway: First Date; Ogunquit Playhouse: Murder on the Orient Express, White Christmas at The Music Hall) as Lina Lamont, and Lance Roberts (Broadway: The Music Man 2022 revival, My Fair Lady 2018 revival) as R.F.

Experience the glitz and glamor of Hollywood’s Golden Age. In 1927, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the toast of Tinseltown, that is until “talkies” arrive on the scene. You remember Gene Kelly splashing his way through this legendary MGM film, which AFI deemed the #1 movie musical in cinema history and “one of the most beloved films of all time”; now experience it live and in person as we make it rain with this joyous and spectacular romantic musical comedy.
