“Singin’ in the Rain” is set to storm across the stage as Catasauqua High School goes back to 1927 when silent movies were becoming obsolete and the “talkies” were just beginning to appear on the silver screen.

The plot involves silent film romantic lead Don Lockwood, sidekick Cosmo Brown, leading lady Lina Lamont and aspiring actress Kathy Selden as they attempt their first Hollywood talking picture.
