Based on the popular play The Rainmaker, this simple, poignant musical features a lively score from the creators of The Fantasticks. Lizzie Curry struggles alongside her father and brothers to keep their cattle ranch going in drought-ridden Texas in the 1930s. But despite all of their troubles, the men’s chief concern is finding a beau for the headstrong Lizzie. Then Bill Starbuck strides into town, promising to make rain for $100 and turns the town — and Lizzie’s world — upside down.
