The theater is intimate and simply adorable. The set looked great and there's not a bad seat in the house. The play had 7 characters. 2 were really good. 3 were passable. 2 were really awful. What can I say? The acting was just uneven and amateurish in parts.
Quotes & Highlights
- "This is a beautiful production, understated and real. It lasts an hour and 35 minutes without intermission and in that short space of time, you will be transported into a charming world where thinking makes it so." -- Lynn Ruth Miller
The Shelton Theater presents The Rainmaker, N. Richard Nash’s classic play about faith, love and raw magic in a time of crippling drought. Beautifully staged by director Julie Dimas-Lockfeld, this funny, poignant and life-affirming story is an unforgettable view into a world where love and belief in the unbelievable are as necessary as rain. Matt Shelton plays the title role of Starbuck, the traveling con man come to bring rain.
