Infused with heart and humor, Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling is a hilarious story of love, loss and enduring friendship. In Chinquapin, Louisiana everybody who is anybody gets their hair done at Truvy’s beauty shop—where the women are all sass and brass. Through clouds of hairspray and over the buzz of blow dryers, six southern spitfires gather each week to gossip and support each other through thick and thin. But those bonds are tested when the ladies face a life-changing event.
Steel Magnolias is sponsored by WE Energies, Executive Producers Cheryl and Bill Guc with Associate Producer Dr. Eric Durant.
Steel Magnolias runs November 9- December 5, 2021 in the Quadracci Powerhouse. Opening night is set for Friday, November 12 at 8:00pm. Purchase tickets at, by calling the Ticket Office at 414-224-9490 or in person at 108 E. Wells Street in downtown Milwaukee.
