“I would rather have 30 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”

The University of South Alabama Department of Theatre and Dance is proud to present their 2023 fall production of Steel Magnolias written by Robert Harling and Directed by Haley Green.

“Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.” Written as a tribute to his sister Susan by playwright Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias explores the relationships between a tight-knit group of Louisiana southern ladies who gather in Truvy’s small-town beauty parlor, celebrating the milestones in each other’s lives. Filled with hilarious repartee and humorously acerbic verbal lacerations, the play deepens when the spunky Shelby (who is diabetic) contradicts her doctor’s advice and risks pregnancy. Steel Magnolias exemplifies the universal and unconditional strengths of sisterhood, resilience, and love.
