August 9 & 10, 2013
As the title suggests, the lead female characters in this moving dramatic performance can be as delicate as magnolias but can also turn on a dime and be as tough as steel.
The action of the play takes place solely on one set; Truvy's Beauty Salon, which is part of her home. There are six female characters who appear on stage and all other characters who appear in the popular film version (starring Dolly Parton, Sally Field & Julia Roberts) are referred to in the play dialogue.
Join us to enjoy this memorable performance that is based on a fictional tight-knit southern community. You'll be introduced to Annelle, a recent beauty school graduate who is hired by Truvy to work in her salon. M'Lynn, matriarch of the group, is helping her daughter, Shelby, prepare for her upcoming wedding. They'll be joined in the salon by Weeza, a grouchy two-time widow and Clairee, a cheerful widow who enjoys taking cracks at Weeza whenever possible. Watch, laugh, listen and enjoy as these women come together to prepare for Shelby's wedding day and as time passes, births and deaths that impact each of their lives.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to show time.
Three different performance times will be offered over two days.
