Actresses of varying ages – 20s to mid-60s – are invited to audition for the O’FallonTheatreWorks’ (OTW) production of the drama by Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias.
The open auditions will begin at noon on Sunday, August 12, in the auditorium-theater at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon Missouri 63366. Performances of Steel Magnolias will be held November 30 – December 2, and December 7-9.
The play’s six characters share an inner strength and deep bond with one another that is offset by a willingness to poke fun that makes them wonderful company in good times and bad.
The action takes place in Truvy's home beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her new assistant, naïve Annelle (who is unsure if she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses free advice along with shampoos and permanents to her clients: Ouiser, the town's rich curmudgeon ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); Miss Clairee, an eccentric millionaire with a raging sweet tooth; and M'Lynn, the local social leader whose daughter, Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, is getting married.
