Resident artist Kendrix Singletary directs the theater’s return to dramatic community theater productions. Steel Magnolias is a comedy–drama play about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. Written by Robert Harling, and based on his experience with his sister's death, the title suggests the "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel.” The magnolia specifically references a magnolia tree they are arguing about at the beginning. A first play which met with immediate critical and popular acceptance in its premier production by New York's WPA Theatre. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching—and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies the antic banter of its characters.
