Rain forecast to stay until 2013

Published 13 March 2012

It will be raining at the Palace theatre for longer than expected as the critically acclaimed musical Singin In’ The Rain has extended its booking period until 23 February 2013.

The musical had been booking until September, but an extra 250,000 tickets have now been released so people can continue to be soaked by Adam Cooper’s show stealing dance routine for the iconic title number into 2013.

Alongside Cooper as Don Lockwood, a silent movie star, Singin’ In The Rain stars Scarlett Strallen as a wannabe actress who finds herself caught up in Don’s Hollywood world when talking pictures are introduced and Don’s co-star Lina Lamont’s (Katherine Kingsley) not-so-dulcet tones aren’t up to the job.

The Chichester Festival Theatre’s stage adaptation of the 1952 MGM classic transferred into the West End last month, opening to a host of five star reviews with The Telegraph’s Charles Spencer calling it “a night of sheer delight”.

Directed by Jonathan Church, the show features two splashtastic downpours that use (and recycle) 24,000 litres of water every performance, as well as showcases a classic soundtrack with songs including Good Morning and Moses Supposes.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
