The bittersweet Southern comedy Steel Magnolias takes place in Truvy Jones' beauty salon, where three generations of outspoken Southern women regularly gather to laugh, cry and celebrate the events of their lives. But their world is rocked when M'Lynn's diabetic daughter Young Shelby gets pregnant, which could prove fatal -- and the ladies' inner strength and love for one another is put to the ultimate test. Based on the playwright's own upbringing, the touching and funny play was adapted into a popular film starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine and Julia Roberts. This Ponticello Enterprises production of Steel Magnolias brings all the camaraderie, humor and poignancy of this lasting show to Woodland Opera House.
Beer, wine, sodas, water, punch, coffee and snacks are available for purchase before the show and during intermission.
