Renowned for his tender personality, the character of Peter faces relatable everyday challenges to which children of all ages will find delightfully entertaining.

A Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats is running at Adventure Theatre February 14 to April 5. Tickets are $20.50, and available for purchase online or at the Box Office. You can also try winning them through the giveaway below.

Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to Singin’ in the Rain at Olney Theatre!


Singin’ in the Rain is the perfect show for the whole family to see this holiday season. Kids will love the slapstick humor, high-energy tap dancing, and live rain on stage. Grownups will swoon to the story of romance and 1920s Hollywood glamour along with classic songs like “Good Morning,” “Moses Supposes,” and of course, “Singin’ in the Rain.” Don’t miss this opportunity to give your kids a theatrical experience they’ll never forget. This holiday season, make sure it rains!

About the production
In the Heights Director/Choreographer Marcos Santana returns to Olney Theatre Center with another classic American musical! Comden and Green’s ingenious tale of Hollywood’s transition from the silent era is buoyed by the thrill of live singing and dancing to some of the greatest songs in the American canon. OTC’s biggest production of the year is certain to impress Broadway regulars and enchant kids with live rain on stage.

“A crowd pleasing revival…with triple threat stars.”
The Washington Post


Singin’ in the Rain is now running at Olney Theatre Center through January 5, 2020. Tickets are $54-$99 and can be purchased online or through the Box Office (301.924.4485). (Look for discounts here.) You can also try winning a Family 4-Pack to the performance on December 31, 2019 at 2pm through the giveaway below!

One Warm Coat
When you go to see Singin’ in the Rain, bring a new or gently used coat to donate! For too many people in our community, rain is nothing to sing or dance about. They lack a seasonally appropriate warm coat to protect them from wind, rain and snow. In the spirit of the holiday season, Olney Theatre Center is partnering with One Warm Coat to organize a coat drive during the run of Singin’ In The Rain. All sizes of new or gently used warm coats will be collected and distributed by Interfaith Works to members of the community in need.
