Newton, NC – Come to Truvy’s beauty shop, where the motto is “there is no such thing as natural beauty.” All the ladies who are “anybody” will come to have their hair done as Steel Magnolias is on stage for one more weekend June 18-20 at The Green Room Community Theatre.

Filled with hilarious wordplay and verbal collisions, Steel Magnolias began as writer Robert Harling’s beautiful, cathartic memoir about his late sister. The story grew into a widely-beloved play and a popular film about the hope, healing, and even humor possible amid heartache.

Steel Magnolias will be performed in the McCreary Theatre in the Old Post Office Playhouse, 10 South Main Avenue, Newton, NC. Shows are set for June 18, and 19 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on June 20 at 3:00 pm. The show is directed by David Townsend and produced by von Drehle Corporation.
