STEEL MAGNOLIAS - February 10 & 11, 2017

Broadway comes to Mesa as the Mountain View High School Theatre Department will present Steel Magnolias as a fundraiser for their theatre program with a cast of guest artists from the Broadway productions of WICKED, LES MISERABLES, JOSEPH...DREAMCOAT, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and more!

This two-night-only event will take place in the Mountain View High School auditorium on February 10 & 11, 2017. Mark your calendars now so you do not miss this event that is sure to sell out!

Written by Robert Harling and set in Louisiana in the 1980’s, Steel Magnolias is equal parts hilarious and heartwarming.

At Truvy’s beauty shop, the motto is: there’s no such thing as natural beauty – the women are all sass and brass. Through clouds of hairspray and over the buzz of blow dryers, six southern spitfires gather each week to chat and support each other through thick and thin. But those bonds are about to be tested when M’Lynn and her daughter Shelby face a life-changing crisis. Infused with heart and humor, Steel Magnolias is a hilarious story that touches on love, loss and enduring friendship.

The cast includes Broadway veterans and AriZoni Award winning ladies such as: Joy Bingham Strimple (Ouiser Boudreaux), Beka Burnham (Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie), Kelli James (Truvy Jones), Maren Maclean (M’Lynn Eatenton), Tregoney Shepherd (Clairee Belcher), and Lana Shumway (Annelle Dupuy-Desoto).

The creative team has received numerous AriZoni Awards for Excellence in Theatre in their respective fields and include: Jere Van Patten (Director), Dori A. Brown (Scenic Design), Angel Woolsey (Lighting Design), Jeffrey Sloan (Sound Design) Aurelie Flores (Costume Design), Joe Navan (Makeup & Wig Design), and Angel Woolsey (Production Stage Manager).
