'Steel Magnolias' at CHS
With all proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Coronado High School will present the play, “Steel Magnolias,” Thursday through Saturday, April 14-16.
Shows will be performed nightly at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium at 1590 W. Filllmore St.
Ticket prices are $3 to $7.
Written as a play by Robert Harling in 1987 featuring a main character with diabetes, “Steel Magnolias” has also been produced as a movie. The story is a “comedy-drama about the bond among a group of women from a parish in the Natchitoches, Louisiana, area,” according to the Wikipedia website.
Elizabeth Kahn, the school drama instructor, said JDRF was chosen as a charity for the show; it's also in remembrance of Millie Harrison, a Wasson graduate who died April 2 of diabetes complications.
