Comedy-drama Steel Magnolias opening at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre
The O’Fallon Theatre Works’ (OTW) production of the comedy-drama Steel Magnolias will be performed at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall),100 North Main Street, O’Fallon. Performances 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, the action takes place in a home beauty salon in Chinquapin, La., where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done by Truvy, who dispenses down-home observations along with shampoos and permanents to her clients. Steel Magnolias is laced with repartee delivered by women whose inner strength, deep bond for one another, and willingness to poke fun makes them marvelous company in good times and bad.
