In the northwestern Louisiana parish of Chinquapin is a beauty salon and unofficial gossip parlor run by the sassy, spunky and unquestionably stylish Truvy Jones. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to anyone who walks in the salon door, including M’Lynn and her daughter Shelby.
An often-debated topic among the ladies is Shelby’s wish to get pregnant despite significant health risks. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother M'Lynn, and Shelby's medical battles, the ladies’ underlying friendship is front and center throughout the drama. With wit and warmth, comedy and heartbreak, Steel Magnolias is sure to capture your heart.
For this show, to help minimize gatherings, DHT will be filling the theatre to about 50% capacity. Please contact the box office for more information: (808) 733-0274.
