Auditions in Winston-Salem, NC for “Steel Magnolias”


Robert Harling’s Steel Magnolias

Location: Winston-Salem, NC

Type: Theater

Set in a small town in Louisiana in the time of really big hair 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 inside. The play is alternately hilarious and touching as it moves from the excitement of Shelby’s wedding to sadness. The dialogue is sharp and funny and all six roles are interesting and challenging.

Character Breakdown:

Truvy Jones to play 35 – 45. Owns the beauty shop. Vivacious. Dispenses advice with lots of hairspray.

Annelle Dupuy-Desoto to play 18-24. Newly hired assistant. Moves from unsure to wild to religious.

Clairee Belcher to play 55 to late 60’s. Widow of former mayor. Grand dame. Elegant, sophisticated, a true beauty.

Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie to play 19. Prettiest girl in town. Loves pink. Strong willed, passionate.

M’Lynn Eatenton to play 40 to 50’s. Shelby’s mother. Always knows what’s best, strong, stubborn, the heart of the piece.

Ouiser (pronounced “Weezer”) Boudreaux to play 55 to late 60’s. Wealthy curmudgeon. Tough, Eccentric character.
