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.
