Geva Theatre Center, 75 Woodbury Blvd, Rochester, will end its 2017-18 Wilson Stage Season with “Steel Magnolias” by Robert Harling in May 8-June 3 in the Elaine P. Wilson Stage.
Through clouds of hairspray and over the buzz of blow dryers, six Louisiana women gather each week to gossip, swap recipes and support each other through thick and thin. But those sisterly bonds are tested when M’Lynn and her daughter, Shelby, face a life-changing event.
“Steel Magnolias,” directed by Skip Greer, features Becca Ballenger as Annelle Dupuy-Desoto, Anna Crivelli as Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie, Brigitt Markusfeld as Truvy Jones, Eve Plumb as Clairee Belcher, Sandra Shipley as Ouiser Boudreaux and Elizabeth Ward Land as M’Lynn Eatenton.
The creative team includes Robert Koharchik, scenic design; Pamela Scofield, costume design; Derek Madonia, lighting design; Dan Roach, sound design; Matthew Reeves Oliver, wig design; Gloria Biegler, dialect coach; and Jean Gordon Ryon, dramaturge.
