Steel Magnolias

The Old Fort Players are pleased to announce the presentation of Steel Magnolias. Written by Robert Harling. It will be directed by Tammy LaFoe. Co-Producer is Jim Baier Ford. It is presented with permissions by Dramatist Play Service, Inc. This play will be presented October 5-7 and October 12-14, 2018. Curtain time is 7:30 PM except for Sunday, October 7 & 14 which are a 2:00 PM matinee.

Set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, it’s soon clear that this is where all the ladies who are anybody come to have their hair done. M'Lynn’s daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a good ole boy. Filled with hilarious repartee and some humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves unexpectedly toward tragedy. The sudden realization of mortality affects each woman in a different way as they draw on their underlying strength—and love for each other. It all proves to give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
