Friendship, Laughter, & Love…
Welcome to Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Aided by her eager new assistant, Annelle, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser (Annie Butler); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee (Christy Brandt); the local social leader, M’Lynn; and her daughter, Shelby, the “prettiest girl in town.” Filled with classic one-liners and hilarious repartee, the play speaks to the underlying strength—and love—of true friendship.
