This week Texas Nonprofit Theatres, Inc. (TNT) recognized our Founder and Artistic Director, Bennie Nipper, as one of the founding members of TNT. Traci Alexander, current TNT president, presented the award.
In 1971 Bennie and her husband, Oscar, began meeting with a group of individuals throughout Texas and identified 129 theatre groups. As a result of their efforts, TNT was established and continues today.
Set in a drought-ridden rural town in the West in Depression-era America, the story is of a pivotal hot summer day in the life of spinsterish Lizzie Curry. Lizzie keeps house for her father and two brothers on the family cattle ranch. She has just returned from a trip to visit pseudo-cousins, which was undertaken with the failed expectation that she would find a husband. As their farm languishes under the devastating drought, Lizzie’s family worries about her marriage prospects more than about their dying cattle. A charming trickster named Starbuck arrives and promises to bring rain in exchange for $100. His arrival sets off a series of events that enable Lizzie to see herself in a new light.
Friday & Saturday @ 8:00 p.m. Sunday @ 2:30 p.m.
