Steel Magnolias


September 5-7, 11-14, 18-20, 2008


Community Players Theatre


“Steel Magnolias” tells the story of a group of gossipy Southern ladies in a small town beauty parlor where they share their lives and loves. The play is deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness that underline the antic banter of it characters. The sudden realization of their mortality draws on the underlying strength and love that the characters share through good times and bad.
