Next weekend, Seattle Musical Theatre is presenting the Northwest premiere of “110 in the Shade,” and it’s inviting you, our readers, to take advantage of a $10 discount off the regular ticket price of $25-$35.
The musical, by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt, is based on the 1954 play “The Rainmaker” that was made into a film starring Katherine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster two years later. From the release:
The scene is July, 1936 in the drought-ridden community of Three Point, Texas. Languishing in the unrelenting heat, Lizzie Curry – too smart and too witty for her own good – ponders her future as an old maid. Her father and brothers have tried to scare up some husband material, but the only likely prospect isn’t cooperating. Enter handsome Bill Starbuck, a charming con man who claims he can bring much needed relief – rain – within 24 hours. His arrival sets off a series of sizzling events.
“110 in the Shade” runs from May 7-23, with curtain at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, and with a special 7:30 p.m. performance Thursday, May 20.
To reserve a seat, call the box office at 363-2809 and mention the code BLOG to receive $10 off any performance, with a limit of four tickets at this price.
The Seattle Musical Theatre is located in Building No. 47 in Magnuson Park, 7400 Sand Point Way N.E.
