In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the movie premiere, we bring this iconic story back to our stage.  Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, is where all the ladies come to have their hair done.  Truvy says, “Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion,” and there is plenty of both in this moving tale about the underlying strength that drives these Southern women.
