Southside musical presents history, entertainment

Southside Theatre Guild’s upcoming musical production is really hot.

“110 Degrees in the Shade” is a sizzling musical based on N. Richard Nash’s book and play, “The Rainmaker.”

The musical centers around Lizzie, a spinster woman, who lives in her family’s ranch, in a hot and drought-stricken American Southwest town. The plot centers on her search for love and her choice between two suitors: Starbuck, a charismatic con man posing as a rainmaker who can bring rainfall to the drought-stricken, and Sheriff File, the town's most eligible bachelor. 

 The show will be performed July 24, 25, 26, 27, Aug. 1, 2, 3 and Aug. 8, 9 and 10 at Southside Theatre Guild at 20 West Campbellton Street in downtown Fairburn. Tickets can be purchased on-line at stgplays.com or call the box office at 770-969-0956.
