Seeking Talent for "Steel Magnolias" Play

Milton, ON, CanadaID: 197890Exp: 10/1/2022

ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED.A "Steel Magnolias" Play is currently in need of performers. Please, see the details below. About the project: Show Synopsis: The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. Additional information: Rehearsals: Tuesday 7:30pm - 10:30pm; Thursday 7:30pm - 10:30pm; Sunday 6:00pm - 9:00pm. Show dates: February 3,4,5,9,10,11 2023. ALL show dates and production week rehearsals are mandatory. Monologue not required, cold read from the script. If interested, please apply.
