M'Lynn is the mother of bride-to-be Shelby Eatenton, and as friend Truvy Jones fixes the women's hair for the ceremony, they welcome a helping hand from aspiring beautician Annelle Dupuy Desoto. Diabetic Shelby has a health scare, which is averted but doesn't bode well for her hopes of having children. Time passes, and the women and their friends encounter tragedy and good fortune, growing stronger and closer in the process.

Applicants should note that reading the play prior to their audition would be highly advantageous.

An audition piece will be given to every auditionee.

It is expected that the auditionee will learn the lines of the audition piece and

present it on an agreed date with the director.
We are looking for high standard of performance for each of the roles.
A rehearsal schedule is prepared and will be given on first response to any enquiries made by an auditionee.
It is a clever idea to come to auditions in character, dress/shoes/hair,

anything that you feel is appropriate for the role you are seeking.

An audition piece will be sent out from Anthony once an audition time slot has been sorted.
