Richland Springs High School has cast their competition UIL, One Act Play for the 2012 season. Starring in Steel Magnolias will be Sara Hedley, senior, as M’Lynn; Katelynn Teel, junior, as Shelby; Brooklyn McGinty, junior, as Ouiser; Brooke Vaughn, sophomore, as Truvy; DeAnna Grady, sophomore, as Annelle; and Melanie Hedley, sophomore, as Clairee. The crew and alternates will include: Denim Reeves, stage manager; Thomas Fowler, light technician; Nick Moore, sound technician; Jonathan Patino, Courtney Herbert, Gunner Mann, Remy Wood, and Ashlynn Grady. The play takes place during the 1980’s in Louisiana in a beauty shop where a group of gossipy southern ladies gather and become friends. It is a story of joy, of loss, and of growth both personal and communal. In less than ideal circumstances, the play has a message of hope and builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving. RSHS will present the play for the public on Sunday afternoon, March 18, 2012.
