PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Set in an in-home beauty salon in Chinquapin Parish, Steel Magnolias is the much celebrated comedy/drama focusing on the friendships of six Louisiana women. Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

This production is a benefit for MUST Ministries of Atlanta. MUST Ministries is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty, providing services to persons in crisis, while maintaining dignity of those served.
