The Alma Performing Arts Center welcomes the touring performance “Steel Magnolias” on Thursday, Feb. 21.
In Robert Harling’s, Steel Magnolias the “female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel.” The show originally opened Off-Broadway in 1987 and was adapted for screen in 1988. The Oscar-nominated film starred Julia Roberts, Sally Fields, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Kukakis, Dolly Parton, and Daryl Hannah.
The script heads within the walls of Truvy’s beauty shop where six woman’s lives increasingly hinge on the existence of one another. Together, they absorb the passing seasons, just like the weathered wooden structure of the salon “home” that they share. Join us for this touching play that includes humor, love, and laughter.
Tickets for this show can be purchased through the box office or online at http://almapac.org/?page_id=17. Call 479-632-2129 to purchase by phone.
Presented by the Alma Education and Arts Foundation.
