Singin’ in the Rain (Age 5+, No under 2s)

Singin’ in the Rain will send audiences swinging around lamp posts this Christmas as it comes to Wales Millennium Centre as part of a UK and Ireland tour. Don Lockwood is a silent movies star with everything he could want - fame, adulation and a well-publicised ‘romance’ with his co-star Lina Lamont. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the studio of a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk…and sing...and dance. Can Don and the uniquely voiced Lina make the transition and will chorus girl Kathy Selden fulfil her dream of stardom and capture Don’s heart along the way? Singin’ in the Rain features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, including Make ‘em Laugh, Good Morning, Moses Supposes and Singin’ in the Rain. Original screenplay and adaptations are by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Directed by Jonathan Church, with Olivier Award nominated choreography by Andrew Wright, the production is designed by Simon Higlett, with sound by Matt McKenzie and lighting by Tim Mitchell. The stage production of Singin’ in the Rain is based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film and produced by arrangement with Maurice Rosenfield, Lois F Rosenfield and Cindy Pritzker Inc. This production is by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc. Music Published by EMI.

Fresh from a record-breaking season of shows at London’s Soho Theatre and a critically acclaimed total sell-out season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, South African comedian Trevor Noah is proud to present his critically acclaimed show, The Racist, on a groundbreaking tour of the UK. He will be at Glee Club Cardiff on Sunday 8th December. Trevor has been performing for a little over five years but his explosion onto the South African entertainment scene has been nothing short of meteoric, taking on TV, radio and his first love, stand up comedy. He has performed on both local and international stages including the UK and US, plus TV appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Show with David Letterman. His sharp wit, intelligent commentary, unmistakable charm and clinical delivery have established him as an extremely popular performer with undoubted world-class potential. ‘Slick, intelligent, blissfully funny...this is insightful, warm, classy comedy’ - ***** Time Out
