Ride the ups and downs at Truvy's beauty parlour where the women regularly gather. Watch the events of over three years unfold as Shelby's decision to have a child despite the complication that could result from her condition, Clairee's friendship with the curmudgeon Ouiser; Annelle's transformation from shy, anxious newcomer to good-time girl then repentant revivalist Christian; and Truvy's relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby's medical battles and her mother M'Lynn, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama.

Second Sunday Talk Back
- Directly following the show, March 8th!
After the performance, we bring the Cast, Tech, and Directors of the production to the stage for an informal discussion with the audience. This is your chance to ask, "Why'd you do that?" or just offer your feedback on the performance - good or bad, we want to hear it! It's a great way to ask an actor about the challenges of their role. or hear from the directors about their concept for the show and why they approached the show the way they did. Ask whatever you like. A Talk back is the perfect opportunity to get the inside track on what goes into every show! Begins 5 minutes after the show to give escape time to those that don't wish to stay... but you should try it! So join us and TALK BACK!
