[ARCHIVED] Spotlight on Youth Presents "Singin’ in the Rain Jr." at Canton's Village Theater

Audience members will surely tap their toes and sing along during Spotlight on Youth’s  entertaining adaptation of the world’s most celebrated movie musical, "Singin’ in the Rain Jr.," at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill from March 16-19, 2017.

Imagine 40+ kids on stage, tap-dancing and singing their hearts out! Bring the whole family to this youth production of “Singin’ in the Rain Jr.,” during a special engagement for one weekend only. Tickets are just $15 per person. Get yours today online at or by calling 734/394-5300.

This fantastic musical entertains with tap dancing, singing and plenty of belly laughs! Set in the 1920s, when silent films gave way to the new movies called “talkies,” two of the most famous silent film stars (Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont) are forced to change with the times. The plot thickens when it’s discovered that Lina’s squeaky voice is like nails on a chalkboard and Don’s chance meeting with a talented young actress, who possesses a great voice, may save the day. 

Grandparents who remember the 1950s film, as well as, young children will delight in this shortened version specially adapted for little ones who can’t sit still for too long. Many of the classic songs from the iconic 1950s film, starring Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, are included such as “Good Morning” and “Singin’ in the Rain.”

Join us for this delightful production Thursday, March 16 – Saturday, March 18 for 7 p.m. evening performances and Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19 for Matinees at 2 p.m. Again, tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 734/394-5300 x3 weekdays between the hours of 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Tickets may also be purchased one hour prior to show time at the Box Office, if available.

Spotlight on Youth hosted a special “Tap” workshop in December that was attended by over 50 youths and adults to teach our SOY youths some tap basics which we have incorporated in the choreography for the show. Parents have banded together to create the build and create the sets.
