First Production of 2009-10 McCoy/Rigby Season

La Mirada~La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and McCoy Rigby Entertainment in association with The Welk Resorts Theatre are proud to present the first production of La Mirada Theatre’s 2009-2010 season of shows, Cathy Rigby and Michael Learned starring in the funny and moving, STEEL MAGNOLIAS, written by Robert Harling and directed by La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts Producing Artistic Director Brian Kite. 


 “If you can’t find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me.”  These words of wisdom sum up Robert Harling’s 1987 off-Broadway sensation and subsequent smash film Steel Magnolias.  Set in a beauty parlor in Chinquapin, Louisiana, Steel Magnolias illustrates how the lives of six distinctly different women interweave via the small town gossip that shadows the unending cycle of birth, marriage and death.


“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years!” Filled with hilarious Southern repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play draws on the town’s underlying strength—and love—which gives the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and in bad.STEEL MAGNOLIAS will begin performances on Friday, October 2 (with a press opening on Saturday, October 3) and runs for three weeks through Sunday, October 18 at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, 14900 La Mirada Boulevard in La Mirada. 



Performances will be 7:30pm on Tuesdays through Thursdays; 8pm on Fridays; 2pm and 8pm on Saturdays; and 2pm and 7pm on Sundays. There will be no matinee performance on Saturday, October 3 at 2pm and no evening performance on Sunday, October 4 at 7pm.
