STEEL MAGNOLIAS - May 14, 20 & 21, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. - May 15 & 22, 2016 at 2:30 p.m.
- Robert Harling’s best-known stage production, STEEL MAGNOLIAS, will take audiences by storm. This touching story follows Shelby, M’Lynn, Truvy, Ouiser, Annelle, and Clairee as they regularly gather together at Truvy’s: a local beauty shop in fictional Chinquapin Parish, Louisiana. STEEL MAGNOLIAS may be billed as a drama, but there are plenty of laughs to go around as well. An extremely popular movie adaptation of STEEL MAGNOLIAS was produced in 1989, which starred Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley McLaine, Olympia Dukakis, and Darryl Hannah. This is a C.A.T.S. Community Theatre Production. Sponsored by Glenn E. Barbour, P.C. and Watkins Hearing Aids Center.
