Theater tickets available for ‘Steel Magnolias’ production
Tickets for the O’Fallon TheatreWorks’ (OTW) production of the drama, Steel Magnolias, will be available starting Monday, Oct. 29.
The award-winning play will be performed in the auditorium-theater at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon. Performances of Steel Magnolias will be held Nov. 30 through Dec. 2, and Dec. 7 through Dec. 9. The curtain goes up at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Written by Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias is filled with hilarious repartee, with characters whose inner strength, deep bond for one another, and willingness to poke fun makes them marvelous company in good times and bad. The action takes place in Truvy’s home beauty salon in Chinquapin, La., where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done as wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to her clients: Ouiser, the town’s rich curmudgeon (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for 40 years”); Miss Clairee, an eccentric millionaire with a raging sweet tooth; and M’Lynn, the local social leader whose daughter, Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, is getting married.
Discounted tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 474-2732 or by coming to the Renaud Spirit Center, 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon. Tickets are $10 for general admission (ages 18 to 64), $8 for students (ages 6 to 17) and seniors (age 65 and up), and free for ages 5 and under. For an additional $2 each, tickets can be purchased at the box office, which opens one hour before the start of each show.
