The Broken Arrow Community Playhouse is proud to present "Steel Magnolias" by Robert Harling April 5 – 14, 2019, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM Sundays at 2:00 PM Ticket Prices Lower Level $18, Balcony Level $13. The story is set in 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, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, 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 acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when the spunky Shelby risks a diabetic pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which gives its characters the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
