Upcoming Auditions

Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling

Set
in
a
small
town
in
Louisiana
‐‐
in
the
time
of
really
big
hair
‐‐
six
women
gather
in
Truvy's
 beauty
shop
for
gossip,
friendship,
and
support.
These
women
are
true
steel
magnolias:
 southern
belles
who
are
flowery
on
the
outside,
but
tough
as
steel
inside.

 The
play
is
alternately
hilarious
and
touching
as
it
moves
from
the
excitement
of
Shelby’s
 wedding
to
sadness
as
friends
mourn
her
loss.
The
dialogue
is
sharp
and
funny
and
all
six
roles
 are
interesting
and
challenging.
