Built in 1880 the Orangery Restaurant at Kilworth House Hotel is a magnificent example of Victorian architecture. Painstakingly restored to its former glory the Orangery has become a destination venue in its own right – light, bright and airy by day and glitteringly romantic by night. Guests can dine here beneath the Orangery’s ceiling of glass, timber and ornate wrought iron. We have our 3-course pre-show lunch in this beautiful setting – the lunch menu will be available, and choices can be made, on the day.
The Kilworth House Theatre is the brainchild of owner and Producer Celia Mackay. Opened in 2007 with 17 performances of The Pirates of Penzance this unique theatre is set in a beautiful wooded glade close to the lake in the grounds of Kilworth House Hotel in south Leicestershire.
This stunning open-air theatre is dedicated to producing and presenting large scale professional musical theatre and was recognised in the national press as one of the Best Outdoor Theatres in the UK.
Brought to you by the same creative team that brought you the hit musical Hairspray in 2023, Singin’ in the Rain will be gracing the Kilworth House stage in 2024!
Adapted from the 1952 movie of the same name, ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ is set in Hollywood in the 1920’s,when the silver screen found its voice and left silent movies – and some of its stars – behind!
Packed full of charm, romance, comedy and Tinseltown glamour, this spectacular show focuses on romantic lead Don Lockwood, his sidekick Cosmo Brown, aspiring actress Kathy Selden and Lockwood’s leading lady Lina Lamont, whose less-than-dulcet vocal tones make her an unlikely candidate for stardom in talking pictures!
One the world’s best loved movies and Laurence Olivier Award Winner for Best Musical Revival in 2001, ‘Singin’ In The Rain’ features all the songs from the glorious MGM score including ‘Good Morning’, ‘Make ‘em Laugh’, ‘You Stepped Out Of A Dream’, ‘You Are My Lucky Star‘ and the show-stopping ‘Singin’ in the Rain’.
This light-hearted spoof of frantic Hollywood – as the advent of sound changes all the movie making rules and Monumental Studios prepares its romantic epic ‘The Duelling Cavalier’ – includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers and love ballads ever written.
Singin’ In the Rain is quite simply 24 carat classic entertainment.
There’s a special aura and magic about open-air theatre on a beautiful English summer’s evening, so what better way to experience that magic than amidst the magnificent surroundings of the Kilworth estate, enjoying a professional production of a standard rarely seen outside the West End of London.
