Steel Magnolias Auditions

By Robert Harling

Directed by Lisa Piccioni

Honey, it’s the 1980s. At Truvy’s beauty shop in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where anyone who is “anybody” comes to have their hair done, the motto is: “There is no such thing as natural beauty.” These Louisianian women are all sass and brass. Witty Southern banter flows like refreshing sweet tea on a hot summer day. Through clouds of hairspray and over the buzz of blow dryers, six Southern spitfires gather each week to gossip. But those bonds are about to be tested when these ladies face a life-changing event. The inspiration for both the 1989 and 2012 films of the same name, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is a hilarious story of love, loss, and enduring friendship.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
