ABOUT THE MUSICAL
110 in the SHADE
Book by N. Richard Nash based on his play The Rainmaker
Music by Harvey Schmidt and Lyrics by Tom Jones (The Fantasticks)

1936. July 4th. Three Point, Texas. In the middle of a heat wave, while locals are desperate for rain, Lizzie Curry daydreams away fears of becoming a spinster in a tiny, dusty town. Her wit, intelligence and lauded homemaking skills don't seem to guarantee a romantic future, and even the reserved town sheriff, File, won't take a chance on the plain girl next door. But, when a charismatic rainmaker named Starbuck sweeps into town promising more than just atmospheric relief, Lizzie's world is suddenly larger than she imagined possible, and choice and clarity arrive like a cleansing summer storm.
