Steel Magnolias

Image may contain: text

McCoy’s Grand Theatre is proud to announce that Steel Magnolias will be coming to our stage this Spring, under the direction of Faye Sherman! Show dates are April 26-28, 2019 AND May 3-5, 2019.

Set in a small town in Louisiana – in the time of 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.

Auditions will be held on February 24, 2019 from 2:00-4:00 pm at McCoy’s Grand Theatre.

REQUIREMENTS: All interested in auditioning must prepare a monologue and be willing to read several parts during the audition process.
