Desert Foothills Theater to postpone performances of "Steel Magnolias"

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Arizonar -- The Desert Foothills Theater (DFT) announces the temporary postponement of "Steel Magnolias" which was scheduled to run March 27 to April 5.

"In light of the updated recommendations from the Arizona Department of Health Services to cancel or postpone mass gatherings with 50 or more people, and for the health and safety of attendees, we are sorry to report that we must postpone the opening of 'Steel Magnolias'," says Terry Temple, DFT Managing Director. "We are working on alternate dates and will post more information to our website soon.

"We are casting now for 'Godspell', which is scheduled to open May 8, and plan to continue with rehearsals during April," says Temple. "We are grateful to Phyllis and Peter Strupp, our season sponsors."

More on The Arizonar
In "Godspell", at the behest of John the Baptist, young men and women forsake their jobs and take up the mantle of Jesus Christ -- becoming his disciples -- in a musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew.

Using song and dance, the apostles traverse the city, spreading Christ's message of love and tolerance as the time moves ever closer to his betrayal at the hands of Judas.

The award-winning Desert Foothills Theater has been presenting live performances in the north valley since 1975. For tickets and more information about upcoming events, visit or call 480-488-1981.
