Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling

Brought To You by the Bellissimo Theatre Company

A FoCAL & Bellissimo Black Box Production

Bring your family and friends to watch Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling as the Bellissimo Theatre Company brings this classic story about Truvy Jones to the Forsyth County Arts and Learning Center in Forsyth County, Georgia.

Welcome to Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy facing M’Lynn’s family. The sudden realization of their mortality affects others, but also draws on the underlying strength and love that give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
