A re-staging of the popular 1964 musical of the same name, Fade Out - Fade In is a musical spoof about the Hollywood film industry during the 1930s, when silent movies diminished to make way for 'talkies'.

The story centers around Hope Springfield, an actress who makes up in beauty what she lacks in talent. Accidentally given the lead role in a brand new 'talkie', the final film is shelved. The producer's nephew, however manages to arrange a sneak viewing, which results in the film becoming a huge success. Expect humorous sketches of iconic actors of the time and, of course, a happy Hollywood ending.
