Miami Little Theatre
Truvy's beauty salon in Chinqaupin, LA is where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Annelle (Miranda Tanksley) is not sure whether or not she is married. The outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy (Tricia Medlin) dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town's curmudgeon, Ouiser (Pamela Catt). An eccentric millionaire, Clairee (Kay Boman-Harvey) and the local social leader, M'Lynn (Paula Darnell) whose daughter, Shelby (Megan Walker) is about to marry a "good ole boy", round out the circle.
In the world of this southern beauty shop, six very different women come together to share their secrets, fears and love for one another while engaging the audience in hysterical and neighborly gossip. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, new beginnings to happy endings, they share each moment in their lives with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair. When tragedy strikes, it is the familiar comfort of Truvy's salon where they seek solace and support that carries them through.
We invite you to be the "fly on the wall" and watch as these six women let down their hair and their guard, where class lines are dissolved, rich and poor, young and old become equal. By the way, be sure and grab a tissue because as Truvy says, "Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion".
