Backstage opens ‘Steel Magnolias’ Feb. 8


BRECKENRIDGE – The Backstage Theatre in Breckenridge will present the play “Steel Magnolias” beginning Feb. 8.The setting is Truvy’s Beauty Salon in Chinquapin, La., where an unforgettable group of women congregate for much more than a wash and set. Gossip, hard advice and verbal jousting is dished out, but laughs ultimately give way to a more serious exploration of relationships and the ties that bind friends together. Through it all, these women become the steel magnolias of the title – beautiful, but string enough to survive any challenge together.The Backstage Theatre production is directed by former Backstage artistic director, Wendy Moore, and features Murphy Funkhouser as Truvy, Jacqueline Lies as Annelle, BJ Knapp as Clairee, Pamela Evans as Shelby, Wanda Creen as M’Lynn, and Wendy Moore as Ouiser.Steel Magnolias opens on Thursday, Feb. 8 and will run through March 17.
