Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling

View Calendar

In Chinquapin, Louisiana, any lady who is “anybody” has her hair done at Truvy’s beauty salon, the girls-only hub of small-town gossip. Far from careless talk, the high-energy banter is propelled by an underlying strength and purposefulness revealed over the course of the story. Alternately hilarious and touching, this critical and popular success suggests that its female characters can be as delicate as flowers but as tough as steel.

Read Review - Cascadia Weekly

What the critics say:

“Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue…The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving.” -New York Daily News

“…a skillfully crafted, lovingly evoked picture of eccentricity in the small-town South.” -Drama-Logue

“…suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy.” -New York Post

Mount Baker Theatre is excited to present its seventh year of the Summer Repertory Theatre series, featuring Almost, Maine; Steel Magnolias; and ‘Art’. Three plays are presented in theatre-in-the-round on a rotating schedule by professional and community actors. These sometimes-playful, sometimes-dramatic shows make for a perfect summer evening night out.

Includes mature content.
