IT could be considered one of Hollywood’s most iconic moments of the silver screen.
Don Lockwood, played by Hollywood legend Gene Kelly, dancing in the rain, twirling an umbrella as he splashes through puddles belting out the title track - Singin’ in the Rain.
Even if you have not seen the movie it is a quintessential Hollywood scene that draws you back to a golden age.
In three weeks the Orange Theatre Company will take on this well-known production and make it their own.
Orange man Nick Tucknott is taking on the famous role Gene Kelly once played and said he is looking forward to the challenge.
“It’s a great honour to be able to do such a role and it’s not often they come along,” he said.
“They’re huge shoes to fill and I don’t ever expect to fill Gene Kelly’s shoes, but hopefully I do enough justice to it.”
Mr Tucknott said he has been hoping for some actual rain in the lead-up to the production on October 12 so he can practise the famous dance scene in wet weather.
For those who have never seen the movie or theatre production before Mr Tucknott said it is a wonderful family experience.
“Expect lots of dancing and lots of songs and a wonderful sense of humour comes through with the writing,” he said.
“It’s a family show with a wonderful sense of humour and it’s warm.”
Singin’ in the Rain will hit the Orange Civic Theatre stage from Friday, October 12 and run until Saturday October 27.
