Steel Magnolias

Last year, I posted a ton about Godspell. It was our first full-length production at Ebenezers, I was working behind the scenes, and I was so proud of our team that I couldn't help but gush. Okay, and I was also partly in charge of the marketing so I blabbed about it a lot.

This year, I've not said much about our show because, well, I'm in it so it just feels weird.

We are doing Steel Magnolias, and I'm playing the grumpy but lovable wealthy curmudgeon Ouiser Boudreaux.

Here are the details:

Where: Ebenezers Coffeehouse
When: September 4-14, 2008

Three generations of women discover the meaning of courage and strength in this classic, timeless play. Steel Magnolias is the emotional story of a young woman battling diabetes, a mother who sacrifices everything for her, and how both women find hope in their community of friends, even in the midst of heartbreak.

Based on a true story by Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias premiered and received critical acclaim Off-Broadway, and then went on to earn an Oscar nomination as one of the most poignant films of our time. This heartrending tale holds layer after layer of humor, wisdom, loss, grief, and the power of enduring friendship. As each unfolds, you’ll cry, then laugh when you least expect it.

Tickets are only $10 and they’re already selling quickly! Reserve your seats now!

I can't wait. If Hurricane Gustav turns this way, I will have to get in my car Sunday morning and head your way. This is one play I do NOT want to miss!
