Stage Door Theatre Company presents Steel Magnolias at Third Avenue Playhouse through Aug. 22. Steel Magnolias follows the lives of six indomitable Southern women as they share their personal triumphs, tragedies, beauty tips, recipes, and more than the occasional piece of scandalous gossip in Truvy’s beauty shop in Chinquapin, Louisiana. Alternately hilarious and touching, it is in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness that underlies the antic banter of its characters.
Featured in the performance are the following actresses: Kay Allmand as Truvy, Katherine Duffy as Shelby, Amy Ensign as M’Lynn, Anya Kopischke at Annelle, Claire Morkin as Clairee; and Claudia Schneider as Ouisser. Performances will be held at 7:30 pm Wednesday through Saturday and 2 pm on Sundays. A special Tuesday evening performance will take place Aug. 18. Tickets are $25 general admission, $10 students and $5 children (11 and younger). For more information or for tickets, call 920.743.1760 or visit thirdavenueplayhouse.com.
