Auditions for Steel Magnolias will be held at the Nye Street Theatre on February 25 and 26, 6:00-8:00pm. Auditioning actors are not required to be present both nights. The audition will consist of cold reading from the script. A non-circulating reading script will be available at the Neill Public Library reference desk one week prior to auditions.
No acting experience is required; auditions are open to all women who are interested (no men in this play- sorry fellas!). Descriptions and age ranges for the characters are provided below; but, actors, don’t type yourself out. You don’t have to look like the characters in the movie – all actresses and aspiring actresses will be considered.
