by Michael and Susan Parker
Playing March 2nd – April 28th, 2019
When Audrina recently inherited the Lover’s Landing Hotel, she also inherited her Uncle Bubba and his various “activities” including some that appear to be illegal. Complications and hilarity ensue as Beatrice Rutherford-Smythe arrives to plan her daughter’s wedding and Bubba impersonates the hotel’s wedding planner Madame Coco. Will Audrina find happiness at the hotel known for sandy toes and salty kisses? “Audiences howled with laughter throughout the premiere as unlikely pairings of guests and staff cavorted barefoot on the beach, dodged flying fish, a mop wielding receptionist and a jealous fiancé with one oar out of the water. With fast paced action, inventive physical comedy and crackling dialog Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses is an audience hit from start to finish.” ~Sandy Gabrielsson, Ritz Company Players.
Dixie Swim Club
by Jones, Hope and Wooten
Playing May 9th – 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…
