Dinner and a Show at The Vineyard Cafe and Dinner Theatre– Steel Magnolias!

August 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$42

Tickets are $42 plus tax and seating is very limited so they will need to be purchased at least 24 hours in advance. We can take credit card information in person or over the phone and will email you a confirmation number. Call 678-581-3771 to purchase tickets before we sell out.

The Menu:
Caesar Salad and Rolls
Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya
Squash, Egg and Cheese Casserole (vegetarian)
Collard Greens
Corn Casserole
Red Velvet Cake (of course, it’s Steel Magnolias!)

The Plot:
The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle (who is not sure whether or not she is still married), the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, (“I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a bad mood for forty years”); an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby (the prettiest girl in town), is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
