Auditions set for Steel Magnolias
Director John Bethke has set auditions for the Drama Steel Magnolias for March 9 and March 10 at the Central Park Players rehearsal hall, 1433 Fulton Ave. at 7 P.M. There will be no callbacks. 

The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a "good ole boy."

Cast is 6 adult women, auditions will be cold reading from the script.
