Based on The Rainmaker by Richard Nash, 110 in the Shade takes place in a drought-stricken Western American town desperate for rain, and tells a heartwarming story of young Lizzie Curry who is convinced she will be a spinster, and Bill Starbuck, the charming con-man who comes to town promising to make it rain. It is a musical about the value of hope and the importance of dreams—the power of believing in something. It is a touching love story that rekindles our faith in human nature and uplifts our human spirit.
