Steel Magnolias
Written by Robert Harling, Directed by Doug Wertz

The quintessential story of friendship and trust, Steel Magnolias serves up a southern slice of life that's as warm and comforting as sweet potato pie! In the world of Truvy's local-homegrown beauty salon, six very different women come together to share their secrets, fears and love for one another while engaging the audience in hysterical and neighborly gossip. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, new beginnings to happy endings, they share each moment in their lives with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair. When tragedy strikes, it is in the familiar comfort of Truvy’s salon where they seek the solace and support that carries them through.

Steel Magnolias opens Friday, February 28, and runs the 28th, March 1, and March 7-8 at 8:00 pm, plus a 2:30 matinee on Sunday, March 9. To purchase tickets, visit our website or call the Playhouse Box Office at 419-522-2883 Wednesdays through Fridays between 1:00 and 6:00 pm.
