Steel Magnolias

STEEL MAGNOLIAS

Steel Magnolias… big hair, big hearts and long, lazy, drawling accents.

Steel Magnolias… gossip pretty as pink and sharp as a spider bite.

Steel Magnolias is a phenomenon. Written as a play and translated as a film (twice) and then as a TV show it brims with one liners to die for…’If you don’t have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me.’

It’s the show that inspired mothers-to be clutching tear soaked hankies to name their daughters Shelby. And why wouldn’t they? A girl who can look death in the face and say, ‘I’d rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a life time of nothing special ‘is sort of special.

A hit where ever it has been performed Steel Magnolias comes to Bega for a seven performance season.

The Thimble Theatre will be transformed into Truvy’s Beauty Parlour. Six of the Valley’s finest actors will primp and curl there for Shelby’s wedding and weep for her loss.

Opening Friday 5 September and running September 6, 7,11,12,13 and 14.

Evening performances 7.30pm Sunday matinees 3pm

Tickets $20, $15 concessions on line at www.trybooking.com/99224 or call 64924928.
