BRUNSWICK — Maine State Music Theatre closes its 60th anniversary season with the smash hit, “Singin’ in the Rain.” This classic show runs from Aug. 8-25.

“Singin’ in the Rain” has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline — the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers. In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen. Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. The stage spectacle of the “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” — faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green — includes unforgettable dance numbers and the songs “Broadway Melody,” “Make Em’ Laugh,” “Good Morning” and the show-stopping title number.

The principal cast includes Nicolas Dromard, Don Lockwood; Brian Shepard, Cosmo Brown; Kate Fahrner, Kathy Selden; Kim Sava, Lina Lamont; David Girolmo, R.F. Simpson; and Andy Kindig, Roscoe Dexter.

The ensemble rounds out the cast with David Scott Purdy, production tenor; Charis Leos, Dora Bailey/diction coach; Drew Carr, Rod; Reagan Danel Ogle, Zelda Zanders; and additional cast members Kelly Liz Bolick, Michael Peter Deeb, Dan Bob Higgins, Jesse Lawyer, Buddy Reeder, Matty Rickard, Alex Eisenberg, Rebecah Rene Kelley, Carissa Gaughran, Mallory King, Ryan Lambert, Matthew Marvin, Elisbeth Christie, Stevie Ann Mack, Lauren McDonald, Melaina Corey Rairamo, Caleb James Grochalski, Jake Hartman, Michael Olaribigbe and Alec Duffy Talbott.

Tickets are available online at, at 207-725-8769 or in person by visiting the box office at Pickard Theater, 1 Bath Road.
