08/01/2016 – "Steel Magnolias," Rangeley Friends of the Arts

08/01/2016 – "Steel Magnolias," Rangeley Friends of the Arts

Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling

July 28, 29, 31 and August 1, 2016, 7:00 PM
Lakeside Theater

Presented by the Rangeley Friends of the Arts and Co-sponsored by ENS Associates and Rangeley Resort.

Steel Magnolias met with immediate critical and popular acceptance in its premier production in New York. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching-and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies its characters. “Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue… The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving.” -NY Daily News,  “…suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy.” -NY Post.

Steel Magnolias has been produced on stages around the world, on Broadway, TV and Film. Anne Crump will be directing our production.

Admission: All seats are reserved and are $15. It is highly recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door. Buy tickets for this event HERE.
