Hello! I am both very honored and also ecstatic about returning to one of my favorite non-musical shows. I was fortunate enough to be able to direct the debut performance of Steel Magnolias on our Putnam County stage in 1992.
Then a few years after that I got the privilege to direct it again at Community Theater of Clay County. This being my third trip down south to visit these remarkable women finds me just as excited to direct again.
The cast is small and tight knit just 6 women. These ladies are all head strong in their own ways. The show is full of smart “one-liners” and has a bit of a somber moment near the end as we see a main character lose her daughter. With both laughter and tears the show makes you feel good. It is a story of unconditional love.
If you are new to Putnam County Playhouse, please consider this a good play to start with. And of course seasoned actresses are welcome at auditions too.
For those of you that are planning to audition for M’Lynn, please note that you will be reading her monologue in the scene after Shelby’s funeral.
I am also looking for several off stage positions as well. Those spots include: Assistant Director, Stage Manager, stage crew positions, as well as lights and sound.
Hope to see you at auditions!
