ABOUT STEEL MAGNOLIAS:

  • Set in a small town in Louisiana—in the time of big hair—six women gather in Truvy’s beauty shop for gossip, friendship, and support.  These six wonderful characters are truly steel magnolias—flowery on the outside and tough as steel inside and each will show both sides of themselves throughout the play’s journey.
  • Harling’s script is hilarious, touching, life-affirming and a magnificent celebration of the wonder of women’s friendships.

ABOUT MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT:

  • Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, MONTY PYTHON’S SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy of hilariously memorable characters and classic bits, not to mention killer rabbits and French people.
  • The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”
