DIXIE SWIM CLUB
THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten
Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. 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. The play focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and ‘perfect’ life, and continues to be the group’s leader. Dinah, the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married – over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of ‘teamwork,’ rally ’round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The story is hilarious and a touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
Men and women will love this meaningful play.
Performance Dates: June 23 & 24th
PISTOLS OR POISON
The small frontier town of Flatt Hills is beginning to boom but not without trouble. The only blacksmith for miles around, Brand N. File, was mysteriously killed during the night shortly after the stagecoach arrived.
Now Sheriff Wynot Burpp has more suspects than ever! Could Rose E. Bottoms, the town’s local saloon gal be involved? Or maybe the new arrival, Ann E. Upp could be the one who put the slug in the blacksmith’s heart. Or was it even a slug that killed File? Perhaps it was something ˜medicinal” given to him by good old Meddie Cine. The plot thickens as much more than meets the eye is revealed about a gambler, the mayor, and even Phil, the faithful bartender.
Everyone is a suspect! The good townsfolk of Flatt Hills are invited to help solve the mystery. Come join in the fun, the eatin’, the singing, dancing and, oh yes, figurin’ out together “Who Done It”.
Three performances, Three different endings. A surprise to everybody, including your very talented and intriguing cast of characters!!
Scheduled for August. Dates and location of this play will be forthcoming.
