Mainstage Musical Announcement

Trollwood Performing Arts School is proud to announce its 2022 Mainstage Musical, Singin’ in the Rain! Trollwood is excited to bring this cinema classic to the stage at Bluestem amphitheater. This adaptation of the film heralded by the American Film Institute as “The Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is set in a time of revolution in Hollywood as the talking picture takes audiences by storm and forces the old hats of the silent film era to adapt their ways. Chock full of classic toe-tappers and show-stopping musical numbers, this musical is sure to keep the whole family entertained. Trollwood’s production of Singin’ in the Rain is proudly sponsored by Bell Bank.

“We are looking forward to producing the classic musical Singin’ in the Rain,” said Kathy Anderson, Executive Director of Trollwood and Bluestem. “Our students will be guided through an educational process by an amazing team of artists, led by Artistic Director Michael Walling. That process will culminate with a unique opportunity to perform a different style of musical than we have produced in the recent past.”

Performance dates are set for July 14-16, 20-23, and 27-30 at Bluestem Center for the Arts, home of Trollwood Performing Arts School, 801 50th Avenue South, Moorhead, MN. Discounted group ticket sales are currently open and are available for the purchase of 10 or more tickets on a single performance night.

Synopsis from Music Theatre International: Faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends, Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin’ in the Rain. Each unforgettable scene, song and dance is accounted for, including the show-stopping title number, complete with an onstage rainstorm! Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin’ in the Rain the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie musicals.

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.


Singin’ in the Rain is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
