Auditions Set For 2013 Opening Show “Steel Magnolias”

By Steve Twilley

Auditions for Second Street Players’ first show of its 2013 season, the comedy “Steel Magnolias” by Robert Harling, will be held at 7 pm on Sunday, Nov. 25 and Monday, Nov. 26 at the Riverfront Theatre, 2 S. Walnut Street in downtown Milford, DE. Auditioners may, but are not required to, attend both auditions.

Performance dates for “Steel Magnolias” are Jan. 25–26 and Feb. 1–2 at 8 pm and Jan. 27 and Feb. 3 at 3 pm. “Steel Magnolias”, made popular as a movie and stage play, is both hilarious and touching as it reveals the strength of its characters. Delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel, Clairee, Ouiser, Truvy, Annelle, M’Lynn, and Shelby are gossipy southern ladies in a small-town Louisiana beauty parlor who laugh, cry, and teach a thing or two about life and how to live it.

Director Ben Lonski, who recently directed Second Street’s September production of “The Diary of Anne Frank,” will be casting women to play six characters ranging in age from late teens to early sixties, and all speaking with a southern accent. Character descriptions of the six women and more information about the show are available on the theatre’s website at secondstreetplayers.com.

Auditions will use readings from the script. Rehearsals will begin in mid-December. No previous stage experience is necessary to audition. For more information, or if you wish to audition but are not available on the scheduled days, contact Ben Lonski by email at ben_lonski@yahoo.com.
