“Steel Magnolias” – December 11-13, 2014

The Guild is presenting Robert Harling‘s play Steel Magnolias on December 11, 12 and 13. Our venue will be the St. Clair Knights of Columbus Hall, 3501 Rattle Run Rd. in St. Clair Township. Curtain time each evening will be 7:30 p.m.

SCTG’s production is being directed by Lucie Gillespie and produced by Brian Moss and Ray Govaere.

Steel Magnolias is the enduring and humorous tale of six southern women who share the ups and downs of their lives at the local beauty salon. As the title suggests, the main female characters are both as delicate as the magnolia flower and as tough as steel.

Harling’s play described the experience of his family and friends following the death of his sister from diabetic complications after the birth of his namesake nephew and failure of a family member-donated kidney. A writer friend continuously encouraged Harling to write it down in order to come to terms with the experience. He did but originally as a short story for his nephew, which he later redeveloped into the play.

Tickets are $15.00 general admission, $12.00 for students and seniors, and will be available after Thanksgiving at the following locations:

  • St. Clair Art Association in St. Clair
  • Sue’s Coffee House in St. Clair
