Southern charm and Hollywood history converge in Chaffin's Barn Dinner Theatre's major summer production. Ron Osborne's script revolves around the 1956 filming of Raintree County, a rather notorious Civil War romance that featured Elizabeth Taylor, Montgomery Clift and other big-name actors. With Tinseltown descending on Natchez, Miss., the star-struck proprietor of a local tearoom vies with the town's other colorful characters for a small role in the movie. Ultimately, goodness triumphs over the petty competitive urges. Dietz Osborne directs a cast that features previous Barn performers Melodie Madden Adams, Pamela Faye and Johnny Peppers, plus newcomers Tammie Whited and Betty Davis.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: June 11. Continues through July 18, 2009
