At turns introspective, romantic, and joyously hopeful, 110 IN THE SHADE is a poignant look at romance in a drought-stricken Depression-era town. Sharp-witted but insecure, rancher’s daughter Lizzie is resolving herself to live out life as a spinster until charming stranger Starbuck comes to town with the promise to make it rain, encouraging Lizzie to dream beyond her own view of herself. Meanwhile, the town Sheriff must deal with the con man as well as coming to terms with his own past. This beautiful show boasts a score by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones (best known for the longest-running musical in history, THE FANTASTICKS).
110 IN THE SHADE runs about two hours fifteen minutes, including one intermission.

Family & Student Matinees
The best deal in town for kids, parents, and students of all ages. Young people under 18 and college students with a valid student ID can see the show for just $10! Younger students receive a family activity guide, get to participate in an intermission contest (with prizes!), and can join in on a post-show discussion and visit with the actors that includes autographs and pictures. This is a great way to introduce the next generation to the heritage of American musical theatre. This is also a great idea for a kid’s birthday party. Please contact Education Director Dyan McBride for further details or if you have a large group wishing to attend.
42nd Street Moon created the Family Matinee to make musical theatre affordable and accessible for young people along with their parents and to provide families the opportunity to experience classic Broadway. Relevant, fun activities and fascinating discussion guides enable families to rediscover how theatre has served an important function in our nation’s cultural landscape and been a way for families to come together. We have expanded the matinee to be a Family and Student Matinee, so that college-aged students can also take advantage of the generous discount.
Family and Student Matinee date for 110 IN THE SHADE: May 4, 1:00 PM
