Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling Directed by Kindra Steenerson Set in a small town in Louisiana  in the time of really big hair  six women gather in Truvy's beauty shop for gossip, friendship, and support. These women are true steel magnolias: southern belles who are flowery on the outside, but tough as steel inside. The play is alternately hilarious and touching as it moves from the excitement of Shelbys wedding to sadness as friends mourn a loss. The dialogue is sharp and funny and all six roles are interesting and challenging. Character Breakdown: Truvy Jones 3545, Owns the beauty shop.Vivacious. Dispenses advice with lots of hairspray. Annelle DupupDesoto- 1824, Newly hired assistant. Moves from unsure to wild to religious. Clairee Belcher 55-late 60s, Widow of the former mayor. Grand Dame. Elegant, sophisticated, a true beauty. Shelby EatentonLatcherie Early 20s, Prettiest girl in town. Loves pink. Strong willed, passionate. M'Lynn Eatenton 40-50s, Shelby's mother. Always knows whats best, strong, stubborn, the heart of the piece. Ouiser (pronounced Weezer) Boudreaux 55 to late 60s, Wealthy curmudgeon. Tough, Eccentric character. Auditions for Steel Magnolias are to be held at Lee Street theatre at 329 N Lee Street, Salisbury, NC 28144 July 1 & 2 from 7pm to 9pm. Please be prepared to read from the script and work as a group. Performances will be August 23-25 & August 30-September 1 at 7:30pm

Fifth Annual Dragon Boat Festival

SALISBURY The fifth annual Rowan Chamber Dragon Boat Festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 28 at The Shrine Club on High Rock Lake, 6480 Long Ferry Road.

The Dragon Boat Festival is the largest annual event held on High Rock Lake, the second-largest lake in North Carolina.

Viewing is free for spectators. Nearly 3,800 Rowan, Davidson and Stanly County residents came out to watch more than 25 teams compete in 2017.

Besides dragon boat races, food vendors will be joined by local soft drink company Cheerwine as well as Salisbury-based breweries and vineyards.

Entertainment during the lunch break will include a drummers parade and raffle.

Spectators are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. No pets, coolers or outside food will be allowed.

Parking is by donation and is available in lots adjacent to the Shrine Club. The Salisbury/Rowan County Convention and Visitors Bureau will provide trolley rides to and from the parking areas.

The Rowan Chamber is passionate about health and wellness. Strong team building coupled with hosting an event of this magnitude that brings together family fun and competition  all on High Rock Lake, our natural resource here in Rowan County  is a win-win for the community, said Teresa Dakins, chairwoman of the festival committee.

Pan Am Dragon Boat has been contracted to oversee the competition and provide each team with the necessary equipment, including life vests.

Teams will learn how to paddle during a practice session, which is included in team registration fees.

Each team will need to provide 20 paddlers  at least eight of whom must be female  and a drummer.

On race day, each team will compete in three heats on a 350-meter straight course.

Dragon boat racing dates back to a more than 2,300-year-old tradition in ancient China with 45-foot boats decked with dragon heads, tails and scales that seat 20 paddlers each.

Drummers sit in the bow pounding the drum to the beat of the paddlers stroke, and a steer person stands in the stern guiding the team down the race course.

Team sponsorships, as well as corporate partnerships, are available at various levels.

For more information, contact the Rowan Chamber of Commerce at 704-633-4221, info@rowanchamber.com or www.rowanchamberdragonboat.org.
