RESPECTED actor Jacki Weaver heads the glittering cast that will bring Steel Magnolias to the Pilbeam Theatre on September 5.

Set entirely in the local hair and beauty salon of a small Louisiana town, Steel Magnolias follows the lives of six women who all have dynamic personalities.

Steel Magnolias was written by Robert Harling, who also wrote Soapdish and First Wives Club.

The production began its life as an off-Broadway show but within three months it had become a hit movie and the stage version continues to be performed all around the world.Jacki Weaver plays the wise-cracking beauty salon proprietor, Truvy Jones, who firmly believes that "there is no such thing as natural beauty".

Truvy's new "glamour technician" is the mysterious newcomer to town Annelle Dupuy, played by Ana Maria Belo, whose television credits include All Saints, Home and Away and White Collar Blue.

Salon regular and elegant widow Clairee Belcher will be portrayed by Jennifer Hagan, a NIDA graduate who has acted in some of Australia's most prestigious theatre companies.

Geraldine Turner will play the role of the sharp-tongued, cantankerous, retired, divorcee and town eccentric Ouiser Boudreaux.

Geraldine's credits include musicals such as Guys and Dolls and Chicago and TV shows Home and Away and All Saints.Following in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts who began their careers playing the role of Shelby will be Marian Frizelle.

Since graduating in 2006 from the Australian Actors Centre, Marian has lived in Sydney and Los Angeles.

She is an exciting newcomer to the Australian stage and one to watch.
