"Starving Actors" Perform Steele Magnolias

Local actors, directors and teachers, coming together to put on a performance of "Steel Magnolias" this weekend in Tyler. The group called "Starving Actors" is in the process of obtaining non-profit status. They started last year with the performance of "Moon Over Buffalo."

This year, the group had a different focus. "We've been around people who've lost loved ones and friends and it's about how we deal with that and I think we wanted to address that this year," said Valerie Frazee.

You can see "Steel Magnolias" Saturday and Sunday at the Jan Jones Theatre at Robert E. Lee theatre in Tyler.

On Saturday, there's a matinee at 2:30 p.m. and another performance at 7:30 p.m. Sunday's performance starts at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors and students.
