Description: Truvy’s Louisiana beauty salon is the place to gossip and get your hair done. Every Saturday, town staples Ouiser, Miss Clairee, M’Lynn and Shelby fill the salon with the sounds of hilarious banter, amusing rumors and unsolicited advice. When a tragic death occurs, the ladies come together and find strength, love and support in one another. Rated PG-13

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS

A Note from the Director: This is open casting. The characters are distinct and strong and should not be limited to previous public perception. Color of skin or size/shape of the performer should be varied and will be available to all. Please do not put these amazing female characters in a box they don’t belong in. The only key aspects needed to tell their story is age and all performers need to identify as female; no drag queens that do not identify as female. Trans, non-binary, basically anyone feminine will be welcome. This play demonstrates the female power and this story will be told by the feminine voices of Central Florida; whatever that looks like in today’s society.

Truvy Jones– 30-40’s she is a bundle of energy and owns a hair salon, which is the setting for the play. She is quite the gossip, and loves to be in everyone’s personal affairs. LIke the saloon Truvy is the glue that holds the ladies together.

Annelle Desoto– 18-25 (will accept 16 & 17 yrs if they act mature) she is young. Annelle is a shy, private, and creative individual. She is kind and gracious towards the women she meets in the beauty salon.

Shelby Eatenton-Latcherie– 20’s she is the daughter of M’Lynn Eatenton. She has diabetes, but does not want her medical background to define her nor does she want to rely on others. She is a pediatric nurse and she wants to have children.

Ouiser Bourdeaux– 50-70’s she is often described as "bitter" or "annoyed." Even though she speaks poorly to the other women, sometimes, she considers these women her closest companions.

M’Lynn Eatenton- 40-50’s she is the mother of Shelby. She also has two sons. She is the administrator of the Mental Guidance Center. Her main priority is taking care of her daughter. On the surface, she appears strong and collected, but deep down she is fragile.

Clairee Belcher – 50-70’s she is the mayor's widow and the owner of the local radio station. She is older and savvy. She is known for her smart mouth and sweet tooth. Deep and loving but only to those closest to her.
