Steel Magnolias

Steel Magnolias

Sept. 10-27, 2015

by Robert Harling

“Steel Magnolias” centers around a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor in Louisiana. This comedy-drama is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing. The quintessential story of friendship and trust, “Steel Magnolias” serves up a southern slice of life that’s as warm and comforting as sweet potato pie! In the world of Truvy’s local homegrown beauty salon, six very different women come together to share their secrets, fears and love for one another. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, new beginnings to happy endings, they share each moment in their lives with grace, determination and perfectly coiffed hair.
