MAIN STAGE

Dixie Swim Club by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten

Dixie Swim Club opens March 15th!

Academy Theatre brings Dixie Swim Club to the stage, a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever. Lynna Schmidt is back to direct an all star cast opening March 15!
Five unforgettable women rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through life’s challenges. Meet Sheree, the spunky team captain, Dinah, the wisecracking overachiever, Lexie, pampered and outspoken, self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, and sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives.  When fate throws a wrench at one of them, these friends, proving the enduring power of “teamwork,” rally together with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction.
“The Dixie Swim Club,” as written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, takes the Southern-fried comedy and occasional melodrama of “Steel Magnolias” and confines it to a cabin instead of a hair salon.

This show is rated PG-13, and not suitable for young audiences due to some adult content.
