Theatre & Dinner Trip

Dinner and Theatre The Mill at Sonning
With much of the original structure retained, this 18th Century Flour Mill has been converted into a renowned Dinner Theatre. Patrons enjoy a fresh home-cooked meal – with not a microwave in sight! – before watching the performance in the 215 seat air conditioned auditorium.
Pre-dinner drinks with a view of The Thames or watching the working Waterwheel in the bar, is an added treat.
For our third New Year visit to Sonning’s Christmas/New Year musical, we will be wowed by Singin’ in the Rain. Perhaps the greatest movie musical of all time, Singing in the Rain will certainly challenge the technical team at the Mill – but if the past two years are anything to go by, we won’t be disappointed with what they achieve.
Following the record-breaking successes of High Society, My Fair Lady and Guys & Dolls, The Mill is delighted to welcome back the same creative team: Director & Choreographer Joseph Pitcher along with Musical Director Charlie Ingles. They will work their magic once again to make this sensational show fit onto the intimate stage – and yes, there will be real rain!!
This classic show brilliantly reflects the transition in 1920s Hollywood from the silent movies to the talkies, all told through the escapades of Don Lockwood, originally played by Gene Kelly in the film. Don and his comedy sidekick, Cosmo, are stars of the silent screen, but have to find their voices, and dancing skills, to make it in talking pictures. Along the way Don falls in love with a chorus girl, Kathy, whilst fighting off the amorous attentions of his co-star, Lina Lamont.
A brilliant script, show-stopping choreography and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards including Make ’em Laugh, You Are My Lucky Star, Good Mornin’ and of course the one we will all be waiting for….Singin’ in the Rain.
