Steel Magnolias at Henderson County Performing Arts Center

The cast pictured above includes Mary McCreary, Timber Stamper, Laural Bass, Linda McLendon, Pat Jousan Williams, and DaVette Shands Ligon.

The Henderson County Performing Arts Center’s 2020 season continues with a hilarious production of the play Steel Magnolias. Performances are at 7 p.m. two weekends - February 20, 21 & 22 and 27, 28 & 29, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, February 23, at 400 Gibson Rd., Athens.  

Marriage and motherhood, friends and enemies, life and death – there is always gossip down at Truvy's beauty salon, and there's a good chance it makes people laugh. Hilarious and touching, this play follows the lives of six women as they stop in at the local beauty shop for some gossip and a blow-dry. The ladies of Chinquapin, Louisiana may be as delicate as magnolias, but they are also as tough as steel, as this much-beloved show proves.   

Reservations are $15, $10 for children, at or by calling 903-675-3908. This play is sponsored by Steve Grant Real Estate.
