STEEL MAGNOLIAS Runs Nov. 4-6

SSCC_Steel Magnolias promoSTEEL MAGNOLIAS
SSCC Theatre
Nov. 4-6
Sothern State Community College Daniels Auditorium [Hillsboro]

Directed by Rainee Angles

Cast: Jessica Wise as Truvy, Emma Horick as Annelle, Leslie Holmes as Ouiser, Bronwyn Jones as Miss Clairee, Paula Campagna as M’Lynn & Madison Hatfield as Shelby

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 (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play is at times touching and funny.

  • Fri-Sat, Nov. 4-5 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, Nov. 6 at 3:30pm

I HATE HAMLET Runs April 1-3

SSCC_I Hate Hamlet logoI HATE HAMLET
SSCC Theatre
April 1-3
Southern State Community College Edward K. Daniels Auditorium [Hillsboro]

Directed by Rainee Angles

Cast: Lawrence Wolf, Chelsea Heifner, Bronwyn Jones, Bob Brown, Paula Campagna & Shawn Thomsen

Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise. Andrew’s series has been canceled; his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When Andrew’s agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrew’s apartment. This prompts a seance to summon his ghost. From the moment Barrymore returns, dressed in high Shakespearean garb, Andrew’s life is no longer his own. Barrymore, fortified by champagne and ego, presses Andrew to accept the part and fulfill his actor’s destiny.
