The Centerville Arts Council is joining with the Beresford Area Arts Council to bring the production of Steel Magnolias to Centerville.
The action is set in Truvy's (played by Vonni Knutson) beauty salon in Chinquapin, LA, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (Candy Bennett), the outspoken, wise cracking Truvy, dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's rich curmudgeon, Ousier (Jo Westra); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee (Gale Gors), who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M'Lynn (Jane Carlson), whose daughter, Shelby Ginger (Ginger Wettstein) is about to marry a "good ole boy."
Through it all, these women become the Steel Magnolias of the title, beautiful, but strong.
Performances are set for Saturday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. in the Centerville School Gold Gym, Centerville. Tickets are available at the door for $5.
