One of the things we love most about our home is the location! We love living in Grand Haven and enjoy many activities in and around our town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that West Michigan has to offer.
This weekend be sure to check out “Steel Magnolias” at the Historic Howmet Playhouse in Whitehall. This show is part of the Howmet Playhouse Summer season so it only runs one weekend, August 22-24. This is actually the last show of the summer season. Wow! It flew by so fast! Hopefully you had a chance to check out some of the other wonderful productions at the Howmet this summer. I know we had a great time at the playhouse!
This blurb is from the Howmet website:
“This beloved story of six strong women in a small southern town is a testament to love and friendship in good times and bad. Set in Truvy’s salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done, Truvy dispenses shampoo and free advice to her new assistant Annelle, curmudgeon Ouiser, the eccentric millionaire Miss Clairee, the local social leader M‘Lynn, and Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, who is preparing to marry a “good ‘ole boy”. Filled with hilarious repartee and humorous verbal collisions, the story also touches on mortality and the importance of the friendships in our lives. The famous 1989 movie was based on this original 1987 script by Robert Harling. Packed with humor and heart, Steel Magnolias promises to be a lovely evening of theater.”
So, I am actually in this production! I am playing Shelby. This has been a dream role of mine since I was 14 years old! We have been rehearsing for about a month and I am so excited to have an audience tomorrow! If you are in the area, come on out and enjoy! I’d love to see you there!
