New London Theatre will present “Steel Magnolias” opening September 9th and continuing through September 25th.

The action centers on Truvy”s beauty parlour and the women who regularly gather there. The story begins on the morning of Shelby”s wedding to Jackson and covers events over the next three years, including Shelby”s decision to have a child despite having Type 1 diabetes and the complications that result from the decision. There is also a glimpse of the unlikely friendship between Clairee and Ouiser; Annelle”s transformation from a shy, anxious newcomer in town to a good-time girl and then to a revival-tent Christian; and Truvy”s relationships with the men in her family. Although the main storyline involves Shelby, her mother and Shelby”s medical battles, the underlying group-friendship among all six women is prominent throughout the drama.

“Steel Magnolias” will be performed on the following dates and times:
September 9 – 8 p.m.
September 10 – 8 p.m.
September 11 – 2:30 p.m.
