Alexandria—Director Diane Falcone announced the cast for City Park Players’ production of Robert Harling’s Steel Magnolias. The production opens the theater’s 60th Anniversary Season on February 21.
Set in fictional Chinquapin, Louisiana, Steel Magnolias is based on the lives of Robert Harling’s mother and sister and their beauty shop friends in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The stage play inspired the enduringly popular 1989 feature film by the same title.
