In Chinquapin, Louisiana, all the ladies who are “anybody” have their hair done at Truvy's Beauty Salon. Helped by her eager new assistant Annelle (who is not sure if she is married or not), Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to Ouiser, the town's rich curmudgen; Miss Clairee, an eccentric millionaire with a raging sweet tooth; M'Lynn, the local social leader; and M'Lynn's daughter Shelby — the prettiest girl in town — who is about to marry a “good ole boy.” The play moves toward tragedy when the spunky Shelby risks pregnancy in spite of her diabetes. The sudden realization of their mortality makes the characters touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
Director Jason Fairchild held auditions on September 11. Rehearsals started on September 26.
