Casting Call for Steel Magnolias

May 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT


Location

Burley High School Little Theater

Production Description

Casting all roles for “Steel Magnolias.” Production states: “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 on the 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. ‘The funniest show to make you cry.'”

Come prepared for a cold read and sides will be provided.
