Georgetown Palace Theatre presents Steel Magnolias
Truvy’s salon is Chinquapin, Louisiana’s go-to place for a beauty fix with a hearty side of gossip. Along with her overeager assistant Annelle, Truvy pampers her small-town clients with hairdos, manicures and all kinds of unsolicited advice. Anybody who’s anybody is a regular: There’s the doting M’Lynn and her soon-to-be-married daughter Shelby, the moody Ouiser and the well-to-do widow Clairee. Through witty banter and wisecracks, this hodgepodge group of women form friendships as strong as steel, which they are forced to lean on when tragedy strikes.
This production will be in the Palace Courtyard, the outdoor area behind the Palace. It is nestled in between two buildings with a big oak tree and lights hanging from above. There will be chairs set up but guests are welcome to bring their own. Guests are also able to bring your own snacks and drinks. The event will be general admission, but groups will be socially distanced.
