“It is wonderful”
“I attended a matinee of Steel Magnolias at the Capitol Theatre — live theatre that never disappoints. It is amazing all that can be done on one stage. We were drawn into the lives of the characters. The actors were excellent, I laughed and cried. It was great. The lighting and sound were well done. The volunteer ushers are always friendly and helpful.”
“Wow!!! This play was amazing!”
“Lovely Little Theatre Showcasing Local Talent. Went to a matinee recently to see Steel Magnolias. The theatre is very nice and comfortable and not too large so you can see the production pretty good from any seat…”
You loved the 1989 Feature film, now experience the Robert Harling classic STEEL MAGNOLIAS live on stage at The Capitol with Director and Visual Designer ANTONIO SARMIENTO’s cinematic style starring six of the Capitol Theatre Ensemble’s top actors.
At Truvy’s Beauty Salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana the hair is big and the gossip is juicy. While their coifs are perfected and daily lives debated, six distinctly different women forge a unique bond of sisterhood — one that even when put to the test, only grows stronger. Infused with heart and humor, “Steel Magnolias” is a hilarious story of love, loss, and enduring friendship.
