Hear Marianne Embree’s delicious Southern drawl as she plays M’Lynn Eatenton in Steel Magnolias at the Big Noise Theatre.
The play centers on six Southern women of Chinquapin, Louisiana, who show more steel than delicacy as they face life’s ups and downs together. A home beauty parlor is their gathering place, where they gossip, needle, and jab each other with good-humored zingers. But when push comes to shove, these friends are there for one another, especially in the darkest of times.
The show runs from January 11 through January 27. For ticket information click here.
Julie Bayer brings her acting talent to perform with the Steel Beam Theater in St. Charles in a production of Silent Sky, the true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt. The play explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth. Julie plays Annie Cannon, a colleague of Henrietta Leavitt, and a famous astronomer in her own right.The show runs from January 11th to February 3rd. For more information and tickets click here.
