DFT postpones 'Steel Magnolias' performances

Posted

The Desert Foothills Theater announces the temporary postponement of “Steel Magnolias” which was scheduled to run March 27 to April 5.

More information including alternate dates proposed will soon be posted on the website, according to a press release.

“In light of the updated recommendations from the Arizona Department of Health Services to cancel or postpone mass gatherings with 50 or more people, and for the health and safety of attendees, we are sorry to report that we must postpone the opening of ‘Steel Magnolias,’” said Terry Temple, DFT Managing Director, in a prepared statement.

Casting is taking place for “Godspell,’’ according to the release, noting that it is scheduled to open May 8 with rehearsals during April.

“We are grateful to Phyllis and Peter Strupp, our season sponsors,” said Ms. Temple.

The award-winning Desert Foothills Theater has been presenting live performances in the north valley since 1975, the release said.
