The Walnut Street Theatre Association will present the well-loved play, “Steel Magnolias,” next week

The directorial debut of Britaney Leonard, “Steel Magnolias” is a stage play by American writer Robert Harling, based on his experience with his sister's death. The play is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana. The title suggests the "female characters are as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel,”according to a WST news release.
