One of Hollywood's most well-loved musicals will be coming to the stage in the newest production from the Finchley and Friern Barnet Operatic Society.

From October 2-7, theatre-lovers will be treated to a new - and the company's most adventurous - production of Singin' in the Rain, the iconic musical starring Gene Kelly and launching the career of Debbie Reynolds.

The story, adapted from the MGM film classic, follows Don Lockwood, a silent movie star whose world is turned upside down when he and his studio are forced to get with the times and turn their films into 'talkies', bringing up a number of challenges to overcome along the way.

Chris Henry, the group's publicity manager, says he feels the buzz around this production surpasses much for the reaction they have had from previous, especially over the subject of how they will "make it rain".

He says: "I’m an Enfield resident, and every time I’ve popped into the Dugdale Centre, I’ve overheard people talk about our production of Singin’ in the Rain and how keen they are to see how we’re going to make it rain.

"I can assure people they won’t be disappointed and they will feel part of that classic rain scene when it comes.

"With each show FFBOS do, we want to continually challenge ourselves and demonstrate what you can do with an intimate space such as the Dugdale Centre.

"It’s also great to be doing a well loved classic such as Singin’ in the Rain that will put a smile on people’s faces and remind them of the magic of live musical theatre."

The Finchley and Friern Barnet Operatic Society performance of Singin' in the Rain opened at the Dugdale Theatre in London Rd, Enfield, EN2 6DS on October 2 and is open until October 7.
