Currently in rehearsal, Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" will hit the Jetty Memorial stage in April!
Steel Magnolias, written by American writer Robert Harling, is a fictional comedy- drama based on his experience with his sister's death. The play is set in
northwest Louisiana and follows the lives of a group of women as they face life challenges with humour and resilience.
The title suggests the "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough
as steel". The magnolia specifically references a magnolia tree they are arguingabout at the beginning.
Revered local director Pat Slattery will guide a small cast of talented local actors
through this poignant, funny and touching play.
Tickets for Steel Magnolia can be found here!
