April brings showers to Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre as 'Singin’ in the Rain' splashes onto stage, April 12-May 26

April showers are guaranteed April 12 through May 26 at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. But the rain isn’t going to be falling on the roof – it’s on the stage!
The refreshing romantic comedy "Singin’ in the Rain" – the stage version of one of MGM’s most celebrated films – pours onto the Beef & Boards stage.

Set in 1920s Hollywood, this classic is the story of Don Lockwood, a famous actor in silent films. His success is shared by his co-star, Lina Lamont, but – at least for Don—their romance is only for the screen. When they star in their first talking movie, Lina’s grating voice causes studio executives to arrange for the voice of the beautiful young actress, Kathy Selden, to be used instead. When Lina finds out, she is furious. While Don has eyes for the lovely Kathy, Lina isn’t about to be pushed aside – on screen, or off.

Memorable songs include “Good Morning,” “Make ‘Em Laugh,” and the title tune.
Timothy Ford returns to Beef & Boards to reprise his 2011 role as Don Lockwood. Kimberly Doreen Burns, who made her Beef & Boards debut last season as Eliza Doolittle in "My Fair Lady," plays his love interest, Kathy Selden. Sarah Hund reprises her hilarious portrayal of Lina Lamont and Buddy Reeder ("Mary Poppins," "CATS") returns to play Cosmo Brown, Don Lockwood’s zany friend and sidekick.
There are 50 performances of "Singin’ in the Rain" scheduled in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre.
Tickets range from $44 to $69, and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, fruit & salad bar, unlimited coffee, tea and lemonade.

For reservations, call the box office at 317.872.9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays. For complete show schedule, visit beefandboards.com.
