Jeff Award winner Roberta Duchak (Xanadu, The Sound of Music, Sweeney Todd, Ragtime, and Spamalot at Drury Lane Theatre) serves as Musical Director of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, and the production is choreographed by Amber Mak (Xanadu, Ragtime and Sweeney Todd at Drury Lane Theatre). Choreography for "Fit as a Fiddle," "Make 'Em Laugh," "Moses Supposes," and "Good Morning" is by Matthew Crowle. The elaborate scenery is conceived by Jeff award winning designer Kevin Depinet (Xanadu, The Sound of Music, Sweeney Todd, and Ragtime at Drury Lane Theatre and Set Designer for the film Public Enemies). Through Depinet's unique vision, a sound stage of yester year dances with original film sequences and glistens with a torrential downpour. The glamorous set is further enhanced by vibrant lighting designed by Julie Mack (Festival Lighting Designer for the Illinois Shakespeare Festival). The production features a stunning array of costumes by Maggie Hoffman, including colorful raincoats, glitzy show girl costumes, Flapper-inspired gowns and ornate 18th Century French pieces. Sound Design is by Jeff Award winner Ray Nardelli (Miss Saigon at Drury Lane Theatre), and Wig Design is by Heather Flemming.
