Tickets for the O’FallonTheatreWorks’ (OTW) production of the drama, Steel Magnolias, will be available starting Monday, October 29. The play will be performed on November 30 – December 2, and December 7 - 9, in the auditorium-theater at O’Fallon’s Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon Missouri 63366. The curtain goes up at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.
Written by Robert Harling, Steel Magnolias is filled with repartee delivered by women whose inner strength, deep bond for one another, and willingness to poke fun makes them marvelous company in good times and bad.
The action takes place in Truvy’s home beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done by Truvy, who dispenses down-home observations along with shampoos to her clients (“When it comes to pain and suffering, she’s right up there with Elizabeth Taylor”): Ouiser, the town’s rich curmudgeon (“The only reason people are nice to me is I have more money than God”); Miss Clairee (“If you don’t have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me”) and M’Lynn, the local social leader whose daughter, Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, is getting married.
Tickets are $10 for general admission (ages 18-64), $8 for students (ages 6-17) and seniors (age 65 and up), and free for ages 5 and under. Tickets at the discounted price can be purchased in advance by calling 636-474-2732 or by coming to the Renaud Spirit Center, 2650 Tri Sports Circle, O’Fallon (63368).
