Steel Magnolias explores the relationships between a tight-knit group of Louisiana southern ladies who gather in Truvy’s small-town beauty parlor, celebrating the milestones in each other’s lives. Filled with hilarious repartee and humorously acerbic verbal lacerations, the play deepens when the spunky Shelby (who is diabetic) contradicts her doctor’s advice and risks pregnancy. Steel Magnolias exemplifies the universal and unconditional strengths of sisterhood, resilience, and love.

Written in just 10 days as a tribute to his sister Susan by playwright Robert Harling, this modern-classic comedy about a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, reminding us of the strength and power of our chosen community.


With its themes of friendship, loss and community, Steel Magnolias stays highly relevant with lessons on the power of love, endurance, and needing humor to sustain us, remain universal and timeless. This is a show for anyone who has found comfort in their community, and knows what it means to laugh off the hard times, and anyone who has ever felt truly seen by the quote: “Well, you know what they say: If you don’t have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me.”
