Sterling College Theatre Department Presents "Steel Magnolias"

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

"Steel Magnolias," a well-loved contemporary drama filled with humor and emotion, is being performed by the Sterling College Theatre Department on Friday and Saturday, April 16 and 17, in Culberston Auditorium on the Sterling College campus.

Robert Harling's "Steel Magnolias" looks into the lives of six very different women who find common ground at Truvy's hair salon. These women share their secrets, fears and loves while engaging in hilarious neighborhood gossip. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, beginnings to endings, they share the joys and struggles of their lives with grace, determination, and perfectly styled hair. At the core "Steel Magnolias" is about friendship, trust, and the realities of life.

Senior Sara Kanary will be directing this all-woman cast as a senior project in partial fulfillment of a degree in theatre arts. Kanary is from Pauls Valley, Okla., and has participated in SC theatre since her first year at Sterling.

"Steel Magnolias" runs Friday and Saturday nights, April 16 and 17, at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the door. The box office opens at 7 p.m. and doors open at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices for adults are $5. Tickets for students, children and seniors are $3.
