Photo Flash: First Look at STEEL MAGNOLIAS at Rivertown Theater

In this age of women's issues at the forefront of the news, Rivertown Theaters is proud to present "Steel Magnolias," the Louisiana-written play that, since it's first production in 1987, has as much poignancy if not more today about women, their strengths and most importantly, the priceless value of female friendship.

It's somewhat of a "Louisiana rite of passage" to experience Steel Magnolias live on stage. If you've already had the pleasure, continue the tradition - grab your loved ones and closest friends to share this beloved "comedy that will make you cry!" Six women come together in this hilarious and heartwarming story of life, love and loss in a small North Louisiana parish. At the center of the group is Shelby, newly married and joyfully pregnant, despite the fact that her diabetes could make childbirth life-threatening. Terrified and angry at the possibility of losing her only daughter, M'Lynn looks to her four closest friends for strength and laughter as she battles her deepest fear of death in order to join Shelby in celebrating the miracle of new life. Not just for the ladies, this wonderfully crafted play is a beautiful tribute to friendship, community and the power of the human spirit that will touch the hearts of all theatergoers. Spend an evening celebrating the Louisiana woman" delicate as a magnolia, but tough as steel."
