North Texas Performing Arts Repertory Theatre presents Steel Magnolias
North Texas Performing Arts Repertory Theatre will present Steel Magnolias, which focuses on the camaraderie of six Southern women who talk, gossip, and tease each other through the best of times, and comfort and support one another through the worst. The play is alternately hilarious and touching with six female characters that are delicate as magnolias yet as strong as steel.
The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry.
