English: A Magnolia tree blossom. Fran├žais : F...

The ladies of a southern town argue about a magnolia tree in the beginning of the play. Are they themselves as soft as a magnolia bloom or hard as steel?  

I think  it's a little of both and that's what the cast and director of Steel Magnolias hope you see too.

Directed by Timothy Locklear for the North Raleigh Arts & Creative Theatre it is a story of six very different women who often gather at the beauty shop and discuss the ups and downs they encounter in their daily lives.

Featuring Lori Ingle Taylor, Dee Penven-Crew, Robin Vaught Parrish, Mary Beth Hollman, Christine Rogers, and Lauren Knott in an ensemble cast.

Don't miss the chance to see this play if your haven't already and enjoy our conversation below with the director and cast where we learn more about the play and their roles.

Meme Simmons Loves Theatre

| No Comments

Meme Simmons HS1.jpgThe theatre is something special.  Meme Simmons knows that.  She was drawn to it as a child.  First singing in the choir at age four then performing in high school plays for five years since she did her first musical with the high school when she was still in the eighth grade.

From high school she went straight to college in New York City.  Eventually landing roles in off-broadway productions and touring companies.

Now she's back in her hometown bringing her theatrical talent to the people of Jacksonville, North Carolina.  Here she has established Debbie's Angels Productions to produce shows and teach acting with the help of her relatives and friends.

In Jacksonville she has helped produce a musical at Southwest High School and directed theatre classes for the city's Parks and Recreation Department.  Debbie's Angels produced a musical called Broadway After Dark last year and has plans for two more adult performances this year and one for kids.

I lived in Asheville for several years, and nothing captured my attention more than the Montford Park Players, an acting company that performs free shows written and inspired by the works of William Shakespeare in an outdoor amphitheater all summer long.  With fantastic actors and direction, it truly is one of the most interesting activities to do in a city full of interesting activities. 

They are currently looking for directors for their productions of Romeo And Juliet, as well as A Christmas Carol that will be shown in October and December, respectively.  If interested, you can contact John Russell at 828-254-5146 or

For all future shows, a director's application can be found here:

The most current show, All's Well That Ends Well - Not A Love Story, will be playing from July 8-31 at the Hazel Robinson Amphitheater.

Since all shows are free, the company runs on volunteers and donations.  You can make your donations on the website
