For this reason, booking arrangements have been changed from "Allocated Seating" to 'General Admission".. Please note: patrons who already hold tickets will be able to take their allocated seats but may be requested to move should the need arise to allow for social distancing. Social distancing of GA patrons will be handled at each performance bearing any such existing bookings in mind.
Please note: It is unlikely that we will be able to offer a safe bar and refreshment service to our patrons.

ABOUT THE PLAY: In Truvy’s Louisiana beauty parlour, a tightly-knit band of friends confront life’s unforeseen tragedies and heartaches with what they do best: gossiping, sharing and laughing. Joining the kind and witty Truvy are: Shelby, the spirited diabetic and bride-to-be; M’Lynn; her always supportive mother; Anelle, Truvy’s gawky new assistant; Ouiser, the local curmudgeon and Clairee, the town’s former First Lady. These are the warm Southern Belles who support one another through life’s challenges with their wry observations, quick wit and unwavering friendship and when tragedy strikes, it is the familiar comfort of Truvy’s where they seek the solace and support to carry them through. 

American writer Robert Harling wrote Steel Magnolias as a way of coping with the passing of his sister, Susan, who died in 1985 from complications related to diabetes.  The title infers that the female characters are as delicate as the flowers on the magnolia tree they are arguing about when we first meet them, but in reality they are as tough as steel.

Directed by Emma Love, this wonderful script will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions – it’s very funny but be warned! You may need a tissue or two!

Row A is at ground level and the seating is tiered from Row B upwards, giving everyone a good view of the stage.
