STEEL MAGNOLIAS at The Candlelight Theatre May 9 – June 21

by Patricia Bradford

This comedy-drama play about a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, inspired the award winning film of the same name. STEEL MAGNOLIAS is alternately hilarious and touching – and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness that underlies the antic banter of its characters. Written by Robert Harling, considered a new American Classic, this slice of life will have you laughing one moment and tearing up the next.

Directed by Marsha Saunders, STEEL MAGNOLIAS features Neena Boyle as Truvy Jones, Tori Mittleman as Annelle, Tanya Lazar as Clairee, Hannah Parke as Shelby, Nancy Bennett as M’Lynn, and Susan Dewey as Ouiser.
STEEL MAGNOLIAS is made possible, in part, through support from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency committed to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
