Don't miss Steel Magnolias in the Black Box Theatre

Set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. The wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoo and free advice to the town's colorful residence -- rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, ("I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years"); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to marry a "good ole boy." Filled with hilarious repartee and some tears, the ladies draw on their love—which makes them a marvelously amiable company in good times and bad. No photography of any kind is permitted.
