Character Descriptions
Characters – 6 Females
Note: The women in this play are witty, intelligent, and above all, real characters.

Truvy Jones: (to play 45 – 55-year-old) A vivacious Southern Belle who owns a small town beauty shop. She knows everyone’s business and shares it with anyone who will listen, dispensing advice with lots of hairspray, often in the form of country sayings.

Annelle Dupuy-Desoto: (to play 18-24) Newly-hired hair dressing assistant who is very shy. She goes from a very soft-spoken person to a bible-loving Christian with her heart on her sleeve.

Clairee Belcher: (to play 55 – late 60’s) A “grand-dame” widow of the former mayor of Chinquapin. She is elegant, sophisticated, wealthy and a true beauty who also knows everyone’s business. Clairee is the sarcastic member of the group. She loves to laugh and poke fun at the little things that others cry over. She is very close with Ouiser.

Shelby EatentonLatcherie: (to play 20-25-year-old) A diabetic young lady who is loved by all. Called the “Prettiest girl in town”, Shelby loves pink, is strong willed and passionate. She has a typical mother/daughter relationship with her mother often rebelling just for the sake of rebellion.

M’Lynn Eatenton: (to play 40 to 55’s) ‐ She is a busy, strong over-protective mother who always knows what’s best for her daughter, Shelby. M’Lynn is the heart of the story. She worries too much, needs to have a firm grasp on the world at all times and can be stubborn.

Ouiser: (pronounced Weezer, to play 55-65): She is an independent, wealthy old curmudgeon who is both tough and loveably. Her unique personality and sense of humor is a great relief in the serious scenes. She is very close to Clairee.
