Steel Magnolias - 2010Set in a beauty parlor in Chinquapin, Louisiana, Steel Magnolias illustrates how the lives of six distinctly different women interweave via the small town gossip that shadows the unending cycle of birth, marriage and death.

Filled with hilarious Southern repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play draws on the town’s underlying strength-and love-which gives the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and in bad.

To catch the spirit of the holiday season, we’re staging the best loved story of Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol.” For more than 150 years, this Victorian tale of the heartless miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, has struck an emotional chord with audience both young and old. This Christmas classic endures, for it shows that we all possess the power to change ourselves, and reminds us that love for our fellow man will give us far more happiness than money.

On Christmas Eve, four ghosts awaken Scrooge and attempt to show him the error of his ways. Throughout the night we meet the impoverished yet happy family of Bob Cratchit, the beautiful Belle, the festive Mr. Fezziwig, and, of course, the endearing Tiny Tim.

Full of beautiful Victorian costumes, fluid sets, and dazzling special effects, this two-hour show (includes intermission) has a cast of 43 community actors from Petrolia, Sarnia, Parkhill, Forest, Dresden and many other locations. Cookies and hot apple cider will be on sale during intermission. Whether it’s a family building memories or a business group celebrating the season, this production is sure to win the hearts of young and old alike. As Tiny Tim says, “God Bless us Everyone!”
