STEEL MAGNOLIAS Auditions and character breakdown

Trudy Jones runs a successful beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies in the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment. Along with her anxious and eager assistant, Annelle, Truvy styles the hair of many of the women about town: wealthy widow and former first lady of Chinquapin, Clairee Belcher, local curmudgeon Ouiser Boudreaux, intelligent and compassionate career woman M’Lynn, and her daughter Shelby, the prettiest girl in town. As the women of Chinquapin makes their way over life’s many hurdles together, they find comfort and a fair amount of verbal ribbing, in one another.
