“This show is not often done, because it’s so difficult and you have to have good tap dancers,” Cox said. “You have to have people that can handle these iconic roles, because everybody knows the movie - or almost everybody - so they have high expectations, which is why I know [the cast] worked so hard, but they are the perfect people to do this.”

One of those “perfect people” to play an iconic role in the show is Corrine Jones, who plays Lina Lamont in the upcoming musical. Jones grew up watching the 1952 film and said ever since her theater career began in middle school, she’s “always wanted” to play Lamont.

“I always wanted to be Lina Lamont,” Jones said. “She’s the iconic character - she’s feisty.

“A lot of people think she’s like the dumb character, but she’s not - I think she’s actually really smart. She can read people well, she knows how to manipulate people really well.”

Following “Singin’ In The Rain,” ALT has a busy schedule as it moves into its 91st season. The theater continues full-steam-ahead with its Extra Extra Entertainment Series, including “Oliver!” the musical, a “Princesses & Company Cabaret Concert,” a production of “Rocky Horror - The Musical” later this fall, and much more. Between events in the series, ALT also has several upcoming shows planned into May of 2025.
