The Delgado Community College Theatre program announces its latest production, “Steel Magnolias”by Robert Harling.
Beneath the southern magnolia trees of an otherwise quiet Louisiana parish rests Truvy’s Beauty Salon, the epicenter of a small town’s dedication to beauty, propensity towards calamity and devotion to humanity. “Steel Magnolias” follows the lives of six of the town’s inhabitants, ladies from all walks of life, bonded through hair, who forge unyielding strength amidst the joy and heartache of life.
“Steel Magnolias” opens Wednesday, April 5 at the Timothy K. Baker Theatre, 615 City Park Ave., 1st floor, Building 1. The production will run one week only: Wednesday, April 5 through Sunday, April 9. Curtain time for Wednesday-Saturday performances is 8:00 p.m., and the closing performance is a Sunday matinee on April 9 at 3:00 p.m.
