What happens when a group of actors takes to the stage to perform a hilarious staged reading of a comedy play they’ve never heard of? In Play it By Ear, our actors will have NO advance knowledge of the play they must perform. The real title of the play will be kept TOP SECRET until the actors are handed their scripts at curtain time. Various props and costume pieces will be placed on stage for their use, and the actors must perform the entire play ON THE SPOT. Don’t miss this wild evening of experimental theater that is sure to be a laugh riot!

Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling

A CWP Mainstage Production

Directed by Aaron Washington

January 11 - February 2, 2019

Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

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, who has a raging sweet tooth, and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a “good ole boy.”

Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy. The women draw on their underlying strength and love to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

This happy-go-lucky view of small-town vice and statewide political side-stepping recounts the good times and the demise of the Chicken Ranch, known since the 1850s as one of the better pleasure palaces in all of Texas. Governors, senators, mayors, and even victorious college football teams frequent Miss Mona’s cozy bordello, until that Puritan nemesis Watchdog focuses his television cameras and his righteous indignation on the institution.

Adult language and subject matter.
