2019 is the 30th Anniversary of Steel Magnolias. Join the Kelowna Actors Studio to celebrate the film. In a small town in Louisiana, six women gather at the local beauty salon to share the ups and downs of their lives. Outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoo and advice, with the help of her shy new assistant, Annelle. Local curmudgeon, Ouiser, and eccentric millionaire, Clairee, snipe at each other, while local social leader, M’lynn plans her daughter Shelby’s wedding. When tragedy strikes, however, the women pull together in this play about life, laughter, love, loss, and the inner strength that helps us go on.
The 1989 American comedy-drama film was directed by Herbert Ross. It is a film adaptation of Robert Harling’s 1987 play of the same name.
