A special staged reading of "Steel Magnolias" by Herbert Ross will feature local actresses at 7:30 p.m. tonight and Saturday at the Art Spirit Gallery, 415 Sherman Ave., Coeur d'Alene.

"We are thrilled to be able to bring this classic play to our community," Benson said. "Our cast is made up of some of the most talented actresses in the area, and I am excited to see them bring these unforgettable characters to life."

"Steel Magnolias" tells the story of a group of women in a small southern town who share joys and sorrows over the course of several years. The play has been praised for its humor, heart and authenticity, and has become a beloved classic since its debut in 1987. It was adapted into a hit film and a successful Broadway production.
