It is the middle of a scorching drought in mid-1930s Texas. Despite her widower father’s and two brothers’ positive encouragement, Lizzy Curry begins to realize that she is becoming a hopeless old maid. Even the town Sheriff, for whom she harbours a secret longing, keeps a guarded distance. It is only when a charismatic self-proclaimed rainmaker names Starbuck enters the town and starts wooing her that Lizzie realizes her dismal life may take an unexpected turn.

Based on the play The Rainmaker by N. Richard Nash. Music by Harvey Schmidt, lyrics by Tom Jones, book by N. Richard Nash.
