The Sauk’s next production, Steel Magnolias, calls for six women of varying ages.
The action is set in Truby’s hair salon in Chinkapin, Louisiana, where all women who are “anyone” come to get their hair done. With the help of her eager new assistant Annelle (it is unclear if she is still married), the outspoken and wise Truby offers shampoo and free advice to Oiser, the town’s wealthy rogue. (“I’m not crazy. I’ve only been in a bad mood for 40 years”); And Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), the daughter of her M’Lynn, the local social leader, is about to marry the “good girl.”
