Our friends from Chemainus Theatre are coming to Vancouver! Their production of STEEL MAGNOLIAS is being presented at Gateway Theatre this fall.
Anybody who’s anybody in Chinquapin, Louisiana goes to Truvy’s beauty parlour to get her hair done. Today, Truvy’s new assistant, Annelle, isn’t sure if she’s married or not, but won’t let that get in the way of “doing good hair.” Their clients are M’Lynn, a social worker who will do anything for her soon-to-be married daughter Shelby; Clairee, an eccentric millionaire; and Ouiser, a curmudgeon who says she’s just “been in a bad mood for forty years.” Six southern belles with backbones of steel rely on each other through thick and thin in this funny, heartbreaking story.
October 6-22 at Gateway Theatre
