St Andrews Christian College presents

Singin’ In The Rain

Fri 12 + Sat 13 Aug  | Burrinja Theatre

St Andrews Christian College presents their 2022 Secondary school production, ‘Singin’ In The Rain’.

Movie musical Singin’ in the Rain, beloved since the moment it premiered, earned the top spot atop AFI’s 100 Years of Musicals list and, in 2007, was ranked as the fifth greatest motion picture of all time. Now adapted for the stage, Singin' in the Rain ‘pours’ down delight, capturing the waning days of the silent screen era as they give way to new-fangled ‘talkies.’ With The Jazz Singer premiere making Hollywood frantic, the studios are forced to suddenly change all the movie-making rules at once, to accommodate sound. In doing so, they leave silent pictures -- and some of their stars -- behind. 

When Monumental Studios turns the silent movie, The Dueling Cavalier into The Dancing Cavalier, a musical picture, in order to stay relevant, they are faced with a problem: their star, Lina Lamont can’t sing, and can’t even really talk. Lina’s voice sounds something like nails on a chalkboard. Enter Kathy Selden, an aspiring actress whose dulcet tones are able to cover Lina Lamont’s -- calling into question what it means to act, how credit is distributed, and what it means to get a fair shake in the movie business. Singin' in the Rain includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers, and love songs ever written, including ‘Good Mornin’,’ ‘Make ‘em Laugh,’ and - of course - the show-stopping dance number, ‘Singin’ in the Rain.

Runtime: 135mins inc 20min interval | Suitable for all ages

Shrek the Musical JR ~ DreamWorks

Fri 9 Sep @  7pm | Burrinja Theatre

Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek the Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.  It is a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.  Part romance and part twisted fairy tale; Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

Once upon a time, in a faraway swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he is handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale would not be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Runtime: 150mins inc 20min interval | Suitable for all ages
