Rehearsals are well underway for the Senior co-curricular production of Robert Harling’s Steel Magnolias. The performance, showcasing the talents of 8 senior Drama students, will be held in the Drama Centre from Tuesday, 21 August to Saturday, 25 August at 7.00pm. There will be an additional matinee performance on Saturday, 25 August at 1.00pm.
The play takes place in Truvy’s Beauty Shop in the quiet town of Chinqiuapin, Louisiana, in the time of really big hair, the 1980’s. Six women gather in Truvy’s beauty shop for gossip, friendship and support. These women are true steel magnolias: Southern belles who are flowery on the outside, but tough as steel on the inside.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for students and bookings can be made here.
