Steel Magnolias presented by the Montana Repertoire Theater
Steel Magnolias examines the American character and investigates the human heart. The setting is Truvy's Beauty Spot in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where a delightful group of women congregate for much more than a wash and set. The wisecracking Truvy, with the help of her new "glamour technician," Annelle, dispenses shampoo with liberal doses of free advise to the town's curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire. Meanwhile, the town's social worker, M'Lynn, is wrapped up in preparations for her daughter Shelby's upcoming marriage. Over the years, many jokes are cracked, many grievances aired, and many tears are shed. Through it all, these women become the Steel Magnolias of the title-beautiful, but strong enough to survive any challenge together.
