The Rainmaker plays September 7-23 at Lionheart Theatre in downtown Norcross. Written by N. Richard Nash and directed by Joanie McElory, this romantic comedy about desperation and hope will inspire you to dream big!
About the show:
During the Depression era in the Midwest, con man Bill Starbuck acts as a rainmaker but is chased out of town after town. One day, he arrives in a drought-ridden rural town in Texas and shows up at the door of spinsterish Lizzie Curry and the rest of the Curry clan. Lizzie keeps house for her father, H.C., and two brothers on the family cattle ranch. As their farm languishes under the devastating drought, Lizzie’s family worries about her marriage prospects more than about their dying cattle.
Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students/seniors/military ID and includes complimentary coffee and dessert at intermission! (Groups of 10 or more can get tickets as low as $10 each.)
A special Champagne Brunch and Show Event for The Rainmaker will be held on Sunday, September 16, from 12:00-1:30pm. Catered by Season 8 winner of Hell's Kitchen, Chef Nona/Sizzling Peach, this delicious brunch is only $35 and includes a ticket to the 2pm matinee performance of The Rainmaker.
