The cast of ‘Steel Magnolias,’ which opens at the Gateway Playhouse this weekend.

“Steel Magnolias,” the much-beloved play by Robert Harling will be presented over two weekends by Fool Moon Theatre at the Gateway Playhouse in Somers Point. The play will run Oct. 25, 26 and 27 and Nov. 1, 2, and 3. Friday and Saturday performances will be at 7:30 pm, and Sunday matinees will be at 2 pm.

Steel Magnolias is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. The title suggests the female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel.

The show boasts an all-female cast with Carrie Cohen as Truvy, Andrea Zakheim as M’Lynn, Jennifer Smith as Clairee, Meghan Rylie B as Shelby, and including Victoria Biron as Ouiser and Sutton Fineran as Annelle.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at GatewayByTheBay.org. The Gateway Playhouse is located at 738 Bay Ave. in Somers Point.
