Shiner Gaslight Theatre

Patti Morales, left, and Josh Kaspar joke with each other backstage at the Shiner Gaslight Theatre. Kaspar and Morales both serve on the board of directors as chairman and costume chair, respectively, and have both directed each other and acted in many plays together over their years at the theater.

Auditions for “Steel Magnolias” at the Shiner Gaslight Theatre will be at 7 p.m. Aug. 16 and Aug. 17.

Directed by Patti Morales, this play takes place in the 1980s and is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in a fictional town in northwest Louisiana. There are six female parts and spots for backstage crew and lights and sound.

Tentative performance dates are the first three weekends in November, with one Wednesday night performance, but the dates are to be determined.
