Auditions at Parish Players

Steel Magnolias
by Robert Harling
Presented by the Parish Players

Directed by M. Carl Kaufman

Produced by Linda Neubelt

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, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to married. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.

As a community theater, Parish Players welcomes first-time performers and veterans alike to audition for our productions.

Audition format and expectations at Parish Players vary according to show and production team. Many will ask for a "cold read" of text from the show; others will invite prepared material, such as a monologue or song (if relevant). Actors may audition solo, in pairs, or groups, depending on the needs of the production. Some auditions are "open" others are by appointment.

Audition notices will be posted on this page when they become available.
