The City Theatre presents Steel Magnolias
Fall in love with the ladies of Truvy’s Beauty Salon all over again as the City Theatre presents the holiday production of Robert Harling’s comedic gem, Steel Magnolias.
Set in a beauty parlor in Chinquapin, Louisiana, the play illustrates how the lives of six distinctly different women interweave via the small town gossip that shadows the unending cycle of life, love, and laughter. The outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the shy yet determined Annelle, the curmudgeonly Ouiser, the eccentric yet sensible Miss Clairee, and the respected and admired M'Lynn, and her daughter Shelby, the prettiest girl in town.
Filled with hilarious Southern repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play draws on the town’s underlying strength – and love – that gives the story and the characters the special qualities that make them truly touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company, in good times and in bad.
