The Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart Theatre Department will present its fall play, “Steel Magnolias," three times in the school’s Susan Saint James Performing Arts Center. Curtain time is 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, Friday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 5. “Steel Magnolias" is an all-female comedy-drama that explores the inner workings of Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana. This small-town, in-home parlor is where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. They also get plenty of free advice from the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy. Playwright Robert Harley based the show on personal experience following the death of his sister. “Steel Magnolias” is alternately hilarious and touching as Harley blends themes of friendship and resilience amidst adversity. Tickets, $15 at the door, can be purchased for $10 in advance online at https://www.woodlandsacademy.org/fall-play-tickets. Woodlands Academy is an all-girls college-preparatory day-and-boarding high school located at 760 E. Westleigh Road in Lake Forest.
