Steel Magnolias Auditions
Arts in McNairy will be holding open auditions for Steel Magnolias 6:00-8:00 PM on February 22 & 23 at the Selmer Community Center. Production dates are April 9-11 and all shows will be staged at the McNairy Central High School Little Theatre. The show is based on Robert Harling’s original stage play that first appeared Off Broadway in 1987 and was later popularized by the 1989 Tri Star Pictures release. Tom Cook will return to the director’s chair for his second show with Arts in McNairy. Tom directed the memorable 2008 production of A Christmas Carol and has been seen on stage in numerous roles over the last several years. As fans of Steel Magnolias will recall, there are six strong female leads and everyone is welcome to read for auditions regardless of theatre experience.
