Dixie Swim Club
by Jones, Hope and Wooten
Playing May 11th – July 14th, 2019
In this Jones, Hope and Wooten comedy 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 Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. 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 Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…
Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling
September 7- October 20th, 2019
The action is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Louisiana, where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant Annelle, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon Ouiser; an eccentric millionaire Miss Clairee; and the local social leader M’Lynn whose daughter Shelby is about to marry a “good ole boy.” It is filled with hilarious repartee and humorously revealing verbal collisions. The sudden realization of their mortality draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in this wonderful story about friendship.

Charlotte and her dog Eugene live a quiet, no-nonsense lifestyle surrounded by sudoku and argyle. Robert and his dog Bella are boisterous and messy and ridiculously in love. Then there’s the neighbor, Suzanne, who basically doesn’t know what’s going on, but definitely has something to say about it. Sure, relationships can be exciting. And if that doesn’t work?
