This is truly an unforgettable production full of sass, style and sisterhood. Written by American playwright Robert Harling, based on his experience with his sister’s death, the show is set in Louisiana in the 1980’s and is equal parts hilarious and heartwarming. At Truvy’s beauty shop, the motto is: “there’s no such thing as natural beauty”—the women are all sass and brass. Gossip, revelations, and witty Southern banter flow like refreshing sweet tea on a hot summer day. Through clouds of hairspray and over the buzz of blow dryers, six southern spitfires gather each week to chat and support each other through thick and thin. But those bonds are about to be tested when M’Lynn and her daughter Shelby face a life-changing crisis.
The play was adapted as a film released in 1989, and earned Julia Roberts an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of Shelby. Infused with heart and humor, Steel Magnolias is a hilarious story of love, loss, and enduring friendship.
Auditions will be held June 6th, 7th with callbacks on June 8th from 6pm-8pm at the Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple Ave Abrams, WI. The play calls for 6 adult females of various ages. Newcomers are encouraged and welcome to audition!

Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience.
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
A riotous ride, complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightful den of comedic genius.

Welcome To Our Website!
The Byng Community Theater was formerly the St. Louis Catholic Church in Abrams. Many updates have been made to the facility to make it performance-ready. We have installed a stage, lighting, a small dressing room, costume and props storage, and converted the vestibule area into a concession stand. Office spaces were turned into the box office and sewing room. Improvements are constantly taking place.
Our organization has become popular with Abrams and the surrounding communities. We involve children and adults of all ages in acting, singing and dancing. We also train young adults to perform the lighting, sound, and backstage duties. We are promoting the arts in young and old alike.
Taking part in the productions is wonderful for all involved and many wonderful friendships are built.
Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. is a non-profit community theatre organization formed January 2003. Since 2007 we have been presenting three shows per year in our home, The Byng Community Theater. Please come and visit us at our next show!
