Missed some of the emotionally riveting moments but was a pretty well acted performance

Loved this show! Outstanding performances throughout. I have this piece performed previously and this is by far the best version yet. Thanks for a terrific evening out!

This is of course a classic play with some very funny lines. Set design was nicely done. Matt Shelton as Starbuck was good, as was Amanda Gerard-Shelton as Lizzie. But acting overall was inconsistent which detracted from the enjoyment of the play...continued

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

Description

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.
