Steel Magnolias
Directed by
Sabian Trout
“Suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy” 
  -  NY Post 
Based on a true-story, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is a heartwarming comedy, revolving around the lives of a close-knit circle of friends who meet every Saturday morning in a beauty shop in the small Louisiana Parish of Chinquapin County. At the center of the group is Shelby Eatenton, about to be married and start her own family -- despite the fact that her diabetes could get in the way. Her mother, M'Lynn Eatenton, looks to her four closest friends for strength and laughter as she battles her deepest fears to support her daughter's decisions. In Truvy's beauty salon, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done, Truvy and her assistant, Annelle, dispense shampoo and free advice to Shelby and M'Lynn, and
enjoy the quick witted remarks of Miss Clairee; the local social leader,  and the town's rich curmudgeon, Miss Ouiser. The play is alternately hilarious and touching - and, in the end, deeply revealing of the importance of friendship. A moving story wrapped in witty humor, and told by women who are lively, funny, and marvelously amiable company-- in good times and bad.
