Steel Magnolias


by Robert Harling


Directed by Mike Lusk

Wise-cracking Truvy offers shampoos and free advice to the ladies of Chinquapin, Louisiana, including her eager assistant Annelle, town curmudgeon Ouiser, the eccentric Miss Clairee, and local social leader M’Lynn, whose daughter Shelby is about to get married. The group’s strength—and love—make them truly touching company in good times and bad.
