Casting is now complete for the St. Louis Muny's summer production of Singin’ in the Rain. The musical comedy, which will be seen at the outdoor venue June 27–July 3, will be directed by Marc Bruni (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), choreographed by Rommy Sandhu, and musically directed by Ben Whiteley.
As previously reported, Corbin Bleu, the High School Musical star seen on Broadway in Holiday Inn, Godspell, and In the Heights, will portray Don Lockwood with Jeffrey Schecter as Cosmo Brown and Indiana University student Berklea Going as Kathy Selden.
The company also includes Ward Billeisen, Patrick Blindauer, Emma Gassett, Gary Glasgow, Madison Johnson, Zachary Daniel Jones, Evan Kinnane, Debby Lennon, Dionna Thomas Littleton, Dory Lorenz, Halle Morse, Kaitlin Nelson, Lizz Picini, Jeremiah Porter, Cassie Austin Taylor, Daryl Tofa, Cayel Tregeagle, and Victor Wisehart with the Muny Teen youth ensemble.
Made famous by Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O’Connor on screen, the musical is a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood as cinema star Don Lockwood must transition from silent films to the talkies.
The production will also have scenic design by Paul Tate dePoo III, costume design by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Nathan W. Scheuer, sound design by John Shivers and David Patridge, video design by Greg Emetaz, and wig design by Leah J. Loukas, with production stage manager Matthew Lacey.
