Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling


Thursday, July 25, 2019 to Sunday, August 4, 2019
Culbreth Theatre

Hairspray, humor, and heartache. Meet the sharp, strong, witty, and big-hearted cast of characters inside Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana. Truvy dispenses shampoos, scathing wisecracks, and free advice, all delivered in equal measure and with her signature flair, to a group of dynamic, hilarious, and resilient women. When tragedy enters the picture, the women offer powerful and universal lessons in sacrifice, love, and the importance of building friendships and memories that can sustain us forever.

Due to adult situations and some mild language, we encourage all patrons to use their own discretion in determining the appropriateness of the material. Call the box office for specific information about any show in the season.

There will be a fifteen-minute intermission.
