Theatre in the Round to Continue 65th Season with 110 IN THE SHADE

Theatre in the Round Players (TRP) continues its 65th season with the musical 110 in the Shade, in weekend performances from April 28 through May 21.

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.

Paul Reyburn directs the 17-member cast, featuring Rodolfo Nieto and Emily Jabas as Starbuck and Lizzie Allen. The musical director/conductor is Angela May, with dance

choreography by Shannon Roberg. Sets are designed by Scott Gilbert and Corinna Troth, costumes by Carolann Winther, and lighting by Andrew C. Kedl.

An audience discussion with members of the company will follow the matinee performance on Sunday, May 7.

Tickets are $24. For information, call the theatre's box office at 612-333-3010 or visit its website at
