`Rainmaker' at Cockpit

June 08, 2000|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Cockpit in Court launches its season tonight with an outdoor production of N. Richard Nash's romantic comedy "The Rainmaker." Under Judy Shannon's direction, the cast is headed by Rodney Atkinson as Bill Starbuck, the slick-talker who promises to bring rain to the drought-stricken Plains.

Cockpit, the summer theater in residence at the Essex campus of the Community College of Baltimore County, has had to abbreviate its season due to renovations to the building that houses its primary theaters, but the summer theater will still mount three additional shows this season: "Red Hot &Cole" (June 15-25 in the Administration Building), "Hansel &Gretel" (July 13-23 in Administration Building) and "Into the Woods" (July 20-Aug. 5 at the Dundalk campus of CCBC).

Show times for "The Rainmaker," presented in the Court Yard Theatre at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Blvd., are 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 7 p.m. Sundays, through June 18. (The show will move indoors if its title brings on showers.) Tickets are $10. Call 410-918-4023.
