The Rainmaker

Wednesday, March 21, 2018 - Sunday, March 25, 2018

The Rainmaker centers on a drought-ridden cattle ranch in Depression-era America. Here we meet Lizzie Curry, who is on the verge of becoming a spinster. Lizzie keeps house for her widowed father and two adult brothers, all of whom are more concerned with finding her a husband than they are of the impending doom of the drought. When an all-too-charming Bill Starbuck shows up on their doorstep with the promise of bringing rain for a ridiculous sum, the lives of the Currys are abruptly changed forever. Will Starbuck bring the rain, or is he just the conman Lizzie suspects him to be?
