All woman cast, strong actresses with good range of emotions needed. Also all to have good (preferably southern) American accents…Not via Oldham/Ashton etc.

Truvy: 38- 45 owner of the beauty shop/hair salon. Heart of gold, knows her clients all as friends….Good actress needed as the lynch pin to the play.
Annelle: 18-23 – beauty shop assistant. This character develops a great deal over the 2 years of the play, from a weed to a rose.
Clairee: 55 plus – wealthy widow of the former mayor. Sports fanatic. Supporter of underdogs. Grande Dame
Shelby: 21-28- prettiest girl in town; chronic diabetic, big range of emotion needed.
M’Lynn: 42-50 – Shelby’s mother. Socially prominent. Business woman. Runs home & family with efficiency, needs experienced actress to get the subtleties of the script.
Ouiser: 55 plus:- wealthy curmudgeon. Acerbic but loveable. Hates everyone & thing but will fight like a tiger for them!
