Stage and screen leading man Maxwell Caulfield teams up with pop legend Faye Tozer in a smash-hit production of Singin’ In The Rain.
The show is on tour following a successful run in the West End and hits Nottingham Theatre Royal from February 4-15.
Maxwell, who plays studio boss R.F. Simpson in the show said: “I am beyond thrilled to be hitting the road with Singin’ in the Rain. As a huge fan of the original movie, the chance to bring this story to life on stage is something I couldn’t pass up.
“Theatre work is a huge passion of mine and having dealt with a few studio bosses in my time too, I relish the opportunity to play R.F. Simpson in this glorious production.”
On television, Maxwell is best known as Mark Wylde in ITV’s Emmerdale, Dr Jim Brodie in BBC1’s Casualty and Holby City and Miles Colby in both Dynasty and The Colbys.
His film work includes the iconic Grease 2 opposite Michelle Pfeiffer. His theatre credits include Billy Flynn in Chicago in both the West End and on Broadway and The Rocky Horror Show on UK tour.
Faye Tozer is best known as one fifth of the internationally successful pop group Steps who have sold more than 20 million records worldwide and had an unprecedented run of 14 top ten singles.
She plays a starlet in Singin’ in the Rain. Faye said: “I am thrilled to take on the part of Lina Lamont in this classic musical.
“I’ve always adored the Singin’ in the Rain movie and love the glamour and glitz of Hollywood in the 20s, so getting to deliver some of Lina’s absolutely hilarious dialogue live on stage is a dream come true. The beautiful costumes I get to wear are a bonus too!
“Having toured the country both with many theatre productions and of course with Steps, I’m also very excited to visit Nottingham with this gorgeous show.”
Singin’ in the Rain tells the story of a silent movie star with everything he could want - fame, adulation and a well publicised ‘ romance’ with his co-star. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the studio of a new kind of ilm, where the actors actually talk...and sing...and dance. Can the sweethearts make the transition?
