McLennan Theatre presents Steel Magnolias

“I swear to you, I will not let my personal tragedy interfere with my ability to do good hair.” Yearning for some laughter, luxury, and a little chit-chat? Then come right in to Truvy’s beauty salon, where all are welcome to rest a spell, try a new coiffure, and partake in the local news. Nestled in Chinquapin, Louisiana, this sassy salon hosts an eclectic gathering of spirited Southern women led by M’Lynn and her daughter Shelby, whose precarious health condition hinders dreams of starting a family. Well-to-do frenemies, the whimsical Miss Clairee and the cantankerous Ouiser, hurl grandiose tales and snarky retorts while Truvy and her fledging assistant Annelle lather up some antics, prudence, and southern comfort. For reservations, season tickets, and more information, please call or email the box office. A representative will return your message.
