All the action is set in Truvy’s Beauty salon where all the “true” ladies in this small town will come to have their hair done. Truvy is helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, who is not sure whether or not she is married! The outspoken, wise cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser: eccentric and moneyed, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to marry a “good ole boy”.

Performances of Steel Magnolias are: Friday’s & Saturday’s February 10, 11, 17, 18, 24 & 25 at 8 p.m. and Sunday’s, February 19 & 26 at 2:30 p.m. All performances will take place at Theatre Bristol’s ARTspace. For more information call Theatre Bristol (423) 968-4977.
