Steel Magnolias

By Robert Harling

Directed by Kathy Strouse

Auditions: Auditions: July 20 & 21 @7pm
Show dates: September 11 - October 4

The Little Theater of Virginia Beach is looking for 6 sensational actresses to portray the memorable, resilient southern women of Steel Magnolias. This beloved play is the story of love, loyalty, endurance and the strength that is forged and nurtured through the friendships of women.


TRUVY - 40'S, the beauty shop owner. "There is no such thing as natural beauty."

ANNELLE - 19, the new beauty shop assistant with a possible past. "I swear to you that my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair."

SHELBY - 25, the prettiest girl in town. "I would rather have 30 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special."

M'LYNN - 50's, a prominent career woman. She is Shelby's mother. "I must have missed the passage in Emily Post that says all abuse must be heaped on the mother of the bride."

OUISER - Approximately 66, a wealthy curmudgeon. "I am not crazy; I have just been in a very bad mood for forty years."

CLAREE - 66ish, widow of the former mayor, very socially prominent. "As Somebody always said ... if you don't have anything nice to say about anyone, come sit by me.

Auditions will be held at the theater at 7 PM on July 20 and 21. Call backs will be July 22 at 7 PM at the theater. Actresses who audition will be asked to read from the script. Ms. Strouse is looking for actresses who bring original voices to these characters. She has no interest in re-telling the famous movie of the play.
