Xavier Players’ “Steel Magnolias” opens next Thursday

For those who have never seen the play or the film version of Steel Magnolias starring Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts, this Xavier Players’ press release describes the play as “a story of the friendship of six southern women who share their secrets and a spritz of gossip and throw themselves open to each other. Every event in their lives, from the mundane to the essential, is faced with grace, strength and perfectly done hair. In the face of tragedy, they turn to Truvy's hair salon and each other for solace and support. Steel Magnolias is a celebration of love, loyalty, strength and the bonds of sisterhood.”
