In the fictional northwestern Louisiana parish of Chinquapin sits Truvy's in-home beauty parlour, where the women regularly gather. It covers events over the next three years of five lifelong residents of the parish, Truvy, M'Lynn, Shelby, Ouiser, and Clairee, and the one newcomer, Annelle. The women interact at times with conflict and spite while preparing for Shelby's wedding, but in the end remain friends: Shelby's decision to have a child despite the complication that could result from her condition, Clairee's friendship with the curmudgeon Ouiser; Annelle's transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl then repentant revival-tent Christian; and Truvy's relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother M'Lynn, and Shelby's medical battles, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama.

"Steel Magnolias" was the first play produced by RCF back in 2009, and we're thrilled to be revisiting this show in our 10th season.

 

Other details:
We are located in the same shopping center as Goodwill. Our entrance is around back, behind the beauty school.
