About the Show
By N. Richard Nash
It’s the middle of a hot, dry summer in the American Southwest. Lizzie Curry returns home still a spinster. Jim’s carrying on about a little red hat. Noah’s badgering everybody. H.C. Curry doesn’t know what a father should do. And the town deputy is wallowing in self-pity. Then Starbuck, a wanted con man, strikes a deal to bring rain in this sentimental romance.
Directed by Mia Self
From the Director
“I was first exposed to The Rainmaker in 1979. It was the Happy Days episode “Fonzie’s a Thespian” when he rescues a community theatre production that lost their Starbuck. He played opposite Marion Cunningham’s Lizzie. It was a poetic love story unlike anything I had ever seen and I dreamed of being a part of this play. This sweet and awkward story invites us all to remember, not only adolescent longings for love, but the lifelong persistence of the desire to matter and belong.
