The New Surry Theatre's 44th Season

New Surry Theatre brings to life N. Richard Nash's romance about a farming family in the drought-stricken West in Depression Era America. The Curry family has two problems - the drought and the lack of marriage prospects for the only daughter, Lizzie Curry. Just when it seems both problems may never be resolved, a mysterious "Rainmaker" comes to town, promising to bring rain. Lizzie's father hires the Rainmaker, and what follows surprises everyone involved and leaves no one unchanged. Directed by Bill Raiten. With Johannah Blackman, Bryan Lescord, Michael McFarland, Tony Rolfe, Jon Ellsworth, Matt Murphy and Bob Fleming.
