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.

LIZZIE Review & Closing Weekend

The Saugus Advertiser freelance reviewer Neil Zolot attended Saturday, October 13th’s full house performance of LIZZIE.

“Although it continues the company’s run of horror and mystery shows in October, the production is as much a rock concert as a musical, maybe more so, with a cast of four women backed by an onstage five piece rock band that sounded like a heavy metal band at times and a new wave/punk band at others.”

He also had the opportunity to speak cast members as well as artistic staff. “’I love it,’” Sliby (Lizzie) said of the show. “’It’s definitely different but that’s what I love about it. You let go and feel the music. I got into it.’”

To purchase tickets for closing weekend – October 19 & 20 at 8:00PM and October 21 at 2:00PM – visit our TICKET PAGE. Special Event on October 20 – admission includes drink ticket and access to post-show reception with the cast.
