Steel Magnolias

Kensington Town Hall
3710 Mitchell Street Kensington

The bittersweet Southern comedy Steel Magnolias takes place in Truvy Jones' beauty salon, where three generations of outspoken Southern women regularly gather to laugh, cry and celebrate the events of their lives. But their world is rocked when M'Lynn's diabetic daughter gets pregnant, which could prove fatal -- and the ladies' inner strength and love for one another is put to the ultimate test. Based on the playwright's own upbringing, the touching and funny play was adapted into a popular film starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine and Julia Roberts. Now, get ready to laugh and cry when all the camaraderie, humor and poignancy of Steel Magnolias comes to Kensington Town Hall.

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...So if you want to laugh out loud, and perhaps shed a tear or two, or just bask in the warmth of female friendship in this cold February, stop by the beauty parlor at Kensington Town Hall and see "Steel Magnolias.""

Theatre Bloom - Highly Recommended

"...Laughter through tears is soon to be your favorite emotion, just like the ladies of Louisiana's Chinquapin Parish hanging out every Saturday at Truvy's beauty shop! Kensington Arts Theatre breaks up the bleakness of midwinter with their stage production of Steel Magnolias, the emotionally heartwarming tale that was made infamous on the silver screen by movie marvels Sally Field, Dolly Parton, and the rest of the iconic 1989 film cast. Directed by John Nunemaker, you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll give your eye teeth to take a whack at Ouiser before all is said and done, this is a show for everyone, but especially for showcasing the strength of women in this current political climate."
