Attic Productions’ next live theatre performance on the stage is “Steel Magnolias,” by Robert Harling. The setting is a beauty salon in Chinquapin, La., where the ladies of the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment with Truvy or her anxious and eager assistant, Annelle. Each woman is unique– a wealthy widow and former first lady of Chinquapin Clairee Belcher, local curmudgeon Ouiser Boudreaux, career woman M’Lynn, and her daughter Shelby, the prettiest girl in town. Come experience the joy, excitement and compassion as these ladies face the realities of life and find comfort in one another.
Chip Addison directs a talented group of local actors in this production, presented by special permission of Dramatic Play Service Inc., with partial funding by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
