BERNARDS TWP., NJ - "The Rainmaker," a drama that is the second in Trilogy Repertory Co.'s "Plays in the Park" series at Pleasant Valley Park, has one more scheduled performance, at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6, weather permitting.
The plays are staged each summer in cooperation with the Bernards Township Department of Parks and Recreation at the outdoor amphitheater at the park, located off Valley Road.
The audience is asked to bring a chair or blanket, and possibly a picnic lunch. The performances are free of charge, but donations are appreciated to help cover Trilogy's expenses.
The play opens in the midst of a drought, and in the middle of a view of a family's differing viewpoints in this classic drama, staged many times and also made into a movie in 1956.
The play is produced by Hank Barre, one of the founders of Basking Ridge-based Trilogy Repertory, who also appears in a lead role.
Other actors on the stage are from the Somerset Hills, and elsewhere in the area, including Michael Giangreco and Bill Ward of Basking Ridge, and Nancy Jean McBride of Bernardsville. Mark Szabo, Richard Butler and Peter Curley are also in roles.
