The Dixie Swim Club

A Heartwarming Comedy

By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten

Directed by Sheila McCarthy
Set Designer Kelly Wolf
Costume Designer Julia Hobert
Lighting Designer Kaileigh Krysztofiak

  On four stages!

Five Southern women who met years ago on their college swim team set aside a long weekend every summer to reminisce and reconnect. 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.

Over the years, the five feisty ladies increasingly rely on one another, through advice and boisterous banter, to get through the challenges that life flings at them – including men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, and aging – with some hilarious and unexpected twists and turns.

Part Steel Magnolias, part Designing Women ... with just a hint of Golden Girls, southern-fried humour abounds in this rollicking comedy about the enduring power of friendship.

Recommended for ages 12 and up. There is no official rating system for live theatre. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child's age and maturity level. Click here to read our complete Ticket Policy.
