Filled with humor and heartbreak, Steel Magnolias is about the realities of the lives of a close-knit circleReagan Theatre Presents Steel Magnolias of friends in tiny Chiquapin Parish.  The play revolvels around Truvy's Beauty Spot in 1980's Louisiana. As the play begins, Truvy and her new employee, Annelle, are preparing for a big day of hairstyling.  M'Lynn and Shelby Eatonton arrive at Truvy's to get their hair done for Shelby's wedding.  While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. As she says, later in the play, "If you can't find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me." The play was penned by Robert Harling, which in turn dealt with the playwright's experience with the death of his sister. 

The show bows at 7:00pm on Thursday, November 14 through Saturday, November 17 at Ronald Reagan High School in the Black Box theatre.  Tickets are $7 in advance, $8 at the door and $10 reserved seating.  The play is directed by Gloria Robinson and James Kaiser and will be presented in conjunction with Pride & Prejudice, which is being presented on Reagan's mainstage.
