Steel Magnolias – May 10-12 & 16-19 – A Touching Comedy-Drama

Synopsis (provided by Dramatists Play Service): The play opens with discussion of Shelby’s wedding day to her fiancé, Jackson, in the fictional northwestern Louisiana parish of Chinquapin at Truvy’s in-home beauty parlour where the women regularly gather. It covers events over the next three years with Shelby’s Type 1 diabetes and how the women interact at times with conflict but in the end resolved friends: Shelby’s decision to have a child despite the complication that can result from the condition, Clairee’s friendship with the curmudgeon Ouiser; Annelle’s transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl then repentant revival-tent Christian; and Truvy’s relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother M’Lynn, and Shelby’s medical battles, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows are at 7:30pm, and Sunday shows are at 2:00pm.

Bonus: For Steel Magnolias, we’ve partnered with local salons, and will be hosting drawings for their generously donated gift certificates during some of our shows!

Lone Star / Laundry & Bourbon – June 14-15 – Two Single-Act Plays in Small-Town TexasSynopsis (provided by theasy.com): Laundry and Bourbon was conceived as a companion piece to Lone Star, and the two scripts are tied together by the relationships between the characters. Lone Star focuses on unsettled Vietnam vet Ray and his goofy brother Roy  drinking and wrestling behind a local bar. Fueled by beer, whiskey, and a run-in with his nerdy nemesis Cletus, Ray’s violence and rage crescendo until a confession from Roy leads to an all-out brawl. “Laundry and Bourbon” takes place back at Ray’s house where his troubled wife Elizabeth is drinking, fretting, and neglecting her laundry when her sassy, social-climbing friend Hattie drops by for gossip and highballs. These lifelong friends reminisce on the men and mayhem of their youth until gold-digging mean girl Amy Lee arrives to revel in her superiority and press her poorer friends to buy overpriced tickets to the Baptist Pancake Supper. As the ladies loosen up and liquor up, they snark and fight and reveal that none are in high cotton.

Both shows are at 7:30pm.

Auditions: Apr 13, 2pm

Alice in Wonderland – Aug 2-4 & 8-11Synopsis (provided by dramaticpublishing.com): As the curtain rises, Alice slides into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to get back home. She tries to get help from the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit, and from the very nice Cheshire Cat. Long enough to contain the most delightful incidents, it is short enough to keep audience attention.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows are at 7:30pm, and Sunday shows are at 2:00pm.

Auditions: May 28th & 29th, 6-8pm

Mark Twain’s The Diaries of Adam & Eve – Date To Be Determined

Synopsis (provided by Samuel French): A uniquely American theatre piece, funny, beautiful, and deeply moving. David Birney has crafted a light-hearted look at the world’s first love story through the eyes of America’s greatest humorist, Mark Twain, whose Garden of Eden bursts with wit, laughter and the lyric poignance of the first love and the first loss.
