Presented by
The Barn Theatre

MONTVILLE -   Established in 1928, The Barn Theatre is one of New Jersey's oldest continuously operating community theatres, providing dramatic,  comedic and musical theatre entertainment to the Morris County area for three quarters of a century.

The Barn Theatre continues its 75th Anniversary  Season with N. Richard Nash's classic American play, "The Rainmaker." Performances are January 17-19, 26-24, 31 and February 1, 2003 -- show times are 8:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00pm on Sundays. Ticket price is $15;  tickets for senior citizens and students are $14 on Sunday performances only.  Jay Ludwig of Kinnelon directs.

A classic American play, "The Rainmaker" is a charmingly romantic 'dramedy' of hope and human  spirit. Outside the Curry ranch the cattle are dying on another arid summer day. Inside, the family frets that 27-year-old Lizzie will become an old maid.  Enter Starbuck, a magnetic tale-spinner with a plan to end the drought and along  with a barrel of sweet talk for the rancher's daughter. Can Starbuck overcome Lizzie's skepticism and bring rain to the desert of her life? Nash's romantic  comedy, an American classic, is a tribute to the power of laying claim - and  holding tight - to one's dreams. It was adapted for the silver screen in a 1956 Paramount release starring Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn.

The  7-person cast The Barn Theatre's production of "The Rainmaker" feature A.J. Liana of Bayonne as Starbuck, Maria Brodeur Ludwig of Rockaway as Lizzie, Marty Stanton of Kinnelon as Deputy  File, Larry Wilbur of Wayne as H.C. Curry,  Tom Morrissey of Hopatcong as Noah Curry,  Patrick R. Field of Bloomfield as Jimmy Curry and Jerry Sapperstein of Montville as the  Sheriff.

The Barn Theatre is located at the end of Skyline Drive in  Montville, just minutes off Exit 47 of Route 287.
