Whether you are a seasoned veteran of TMI or a new face to our family, we can’t wait for you to audition and become a part of the magic! The show will melt everyone’s heart when that glass slipper finally fits! See you at auditions!

Steel Magnolias, July 20-23
The show 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.
A Note From The Director:
I am excited to be directing “Steel Magnolias” this summer. It has long been a favorite show because it showcases six strong, resilient, smart, funny women. I’ll be joined this by Cara Baker as assistant director, Laurene Franjione as acting coach & hair & make up chair, Stephanie Spence as costume chair, Jared Cron as technical director, McKenna Spindler as hair & make up crew, and many more yet to come. (We are still looking for someone to supervise the assembly of our very simple set) It’s going to be a wonderful summer!
