Last night (July 12th) was the preview evening at The Peterborough Theatre Guild for their latest production Steel Magnolias. Written by Robert Harling and directed by Judi Wilson, it runs July 13th through July 22nd.
Upon seeing the set, you are immediately transformed back to an '80s beauty parlour where Truvy (Chandelle Hamilton), Annelle (Lia Formenti), Clairee (Marlys Kerkman), Shelby (Hannah Bailey), M'Lynn (Dani Bombala) and Ouiser (Lorna Green) gab about the trials and tribulations of their daily life in Chinquapin, Louisiana, and create friendships as they get their hair and nails done at Truvy's Beauty Shop.
These six women have such a strong bond with one another and when faced with tragedy, prove how strong and supportive dear friends can be.
So gather your girlfriends and take in this show before it ends on July 22nd. Visit the box office for tickets and showtimes.
Here's some pictures from the production...
