"The funniest show to make you cry.” 

Set in a small town in Louisiana in the 1980s ‐‐ in the time of REALLY big hair ‐‐ six women gather in Truvy's beauty salon for gossip, friendship, and support.  These women are true steel magnolias: southern belles who are flowery on the outside, but tough as steel inside. The play is alternately hilarious and touching.  The dialogue is sharp and funny and all six roles are interesting and challenging.

ROLES: 
  • TRUVY JONES –  to play 35 ‐45 ‐ Owns the beauty salon. Vivacious. Dispenses advice with lots of hairspray.
  • ANELLE DESOTO ‐  to play 18 ‐ 24 ‐ Newly hired assistant. Moves from unsure, to wild and on to religious. 
  • CLAIREE BELCHER - to play 60 to late 70’s ‐ Widow of former mayor. Grand dame. Elegant, sophisticated, a true beauty.
  • SHELBY EATENTON – to play 19-22 - the Prettiest girl in town. Loves pink. Strong willed, passionate.
  • M'LYNN EATENTON ‐ to play 40 to 50’s ‐ Shelby's mother. Always knows what’s best, strong, stubborn, the heart of the piece.
  • OUISER (pronounced Weezer) BOUDREAUX  ‐ 69 to late 70’s ‐ Wealthy curmudgeon. Tough, Eccentric character.
