Timeless Classic ‘Steel Magnolias’ Comes to Clermont Performing Arts Center


Don’t miss your chance to see a timeless classic in Clermont.


“Steel Magnolias,” presented in a live radio play format, is coming for one show only at 3 p.m. March 3 on the Mainstage at the Clermont Performing Arts Center, 3700 S. U.S. Highway 27.

This play remains one of the great stories of female empowerment and resilience. Get excited because L.A. Theatre Works’s actresses from popular TV shows such as “ER,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NCIS” and more will portray iconic roles.


At times both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, “Steel Magnolias” reveals the strength of the human condition and our shared need for companionship in a live radio play format.

“Steel Magnolias” was a popular film starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton and Julia Roberts. The play has had multiple New York runs and performances staged around the globe. Full of memorable characters, it is considered a tour de force for its female cast.

Within the walls of Truvy’s beauty shop, set in the deep Bayou of Louisiana, are six strong women whose lives increasingly hinge on the existence of one another. Together, they absorb the passing seasons, just like the weathered wooden structure of the salon “home” that they share. What if, like these six women, we didn’t have to go it alone? What if the comfort we’ve been searching for has always been there, right in our own backyard.
