At Truvy’s beauty shop in Chinquapin, LA, “There is no such thing as natural beauty,” but those who see her in the upcoming production of Steel Magnolias might decide otherwise.

Director Tom Durham is looking for vivacious women to play roles that, like the title suggests, can be as delicate as a flower, but tough as metal.

Auditions will take place at the Mongerson Theater, 37 North Buffalo Street, Springville on March 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. Actors should come prepared to read a small excerpt from the play. All experience levels are welcome to audition for this show.

The production takes place May 11-21 and the rehearsal schedule will be available at the auditions. Information is available by calling (716) 592-9038 or by visiting
