Kentwood Players – Steel Magnolias to Open March 15, Tickets on Sale Now

‘Steel Magnolias’  follows the trials and tribulations of six sassy and formidable women in 1980’s Chinquapin Parish, Louisiana. Truvy’s Beauty Salon is where all the ladies who are anybody in town meet every Saturday to have their hair done and exchange news and gossip. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to Ouiser, the town’s rich curmudgeon; Miss Clairee, an eccentric millionaire with a raging sweet tooth; and M’Lynn, the local social leader whose daughter Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, is about to get married.

Filled with hilarious repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play draws the women together to deal with life, love and loss, drawing on their underlying strength and devotion to each other in good times and bad.
