Steel Magnolias Auditions

February 17, 2019 - February 18, 2019

The Gallery Players in Park Slope is holding auditions for its upcoming AEA showcase production (approval pending) of STEEL MAGNOLIAS by Robert Harling (April 13 – 28, 2019). Director, Avital Asuleen. Co-Producers: Dominic Cuskern and Marty Goldin.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS examines the relationships between a tight-knit group of southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, who witness the milestones in each other’s lives. The play is alternately hilarious and touching – and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.

Performances run April 13th – 28th (Thursday – Saturday nights, and Saturday and Sunday matinees). Rehearsals start Sunday, March 10th and take place evenings and weekends. All auditions, rehearsals, and performances will take place at the Gallery Players, 199 14th Street, Brooklyn. Equity/Non-Equity. No pay. We encourage all ethnicities and races to attend.


  • Truvy Jones, 40s. Owner of the beauty shop.
  • Annelle Dupuy-Desoto, 19. Beauty shop assistant.
  • Clairee Belcher, 66. Widow of former mayor. Grande dame.
  • Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie, 25. Prettiest girl in town.
  • M’lynn Eatenton, 50s. Shelby’s mother. Socially prominent career woman.
  • Ouiser (pronounced “Weezer”) Boudreaux, 66. Wealthy curmudgeon. Acerbic but loveable

Auditions will be held on Sunday, February 17, 4-6PM and Monday, February 18, 7-9PM

Sign-up will start 30 minutes before the start of auditions.

Please bring your headshot and resume. Prepare a one-minute contemporary monologue. It can be comic or serious. The monologue doesn’t have to be in an American southern accent but you will be asked about your facility with a southern accent.
