Steel Magnolias Cast Announcement

Rehearsals are about to begin for Steel Magnolias – our spring 2019 production – and the fourth mainstage show of our 2018-2019 50th Anniversary Season. You may be familiar with the film version of this play featuring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, and Julia Roberts to name a few. The theatrical version is all about the six women and the time spent in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana. While they may discuss the men in their lives and other friends and family, it is only through their descriptions that we see them.  For more information about the performance and the cast and production team listing, visit our show page.

Tickets will be available online for purchase in the coming week. There will be six performances over two weekends – Fri-Sun, April 26-28 and May 3-5, 2019.

On the second Saturday, May 4, we will be having a special event. Your advanced ticket purchase will include a drink ticket and access to the post-show reception of the performance. Tickets for this event will be the same rate for adults or seniors/students. Tickets purchased at the door will cost the same as the advance price, but will not include the drink ticket for the evening.

Purchasing in advance guarantees you a seat and for the other five performances saves you a little bit over the at door prices – even with the online transaction fee.
