The quintessential story of friendship and trust, Steel Magnolias serves up a southern slice of life that's as warm and comforting as sweet potato pie! In the world of Truvy's local-homegrown beauty salon, six very different women come together to share their secrets, fears and love for one another while engaging the audience in hysterical and neighborly gossip. From weddings to divorces, babies to funerals, new beginnings to happy endings, they share each moment in their lives with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair. When tragedy strikes, it is in the familiar comfort of Truvy's salon where they seek the solace and support that carries them through.

In 1880, a stretch of Broadway between Union Square and Madison Square was illuminated by Brush arc lamps, making it among the first electrically lighted streets in the United States. By the 1890’s, the portion from 23rd Street to 34th Street was so brightly illuminated by electrical advertising signs, that people began calling it "The Great White Way."
"The New Honky Tonk" is a rip- roarin,' side-splitting, toe-tapping, knee-slapping, romantic comedy, with a country western flare!
This high energy theatrical extravaganza offers audience members everything from tap dancing to an unexpected cowboy ballet! Yep, all bases are covered in this Honky Tonk!
Come meet Susie Sunshine and her eclectic residents as they try and save the Sunshine Saloon from the likes of Bart Finklestein and those he's hired to "bring the place down." There's love, friendship, and even a good fight or two, as Susie tries to save her grandma's saloon.
This musical offers one song after the other with hilarious characters, amazing costumes, and wonderful performances by the young adults of The Red Cane Theatre, Eugene, OR.
