The Dixie Swim Club is a touching comedy about five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, who set aside a long weekend every summer to recharge their relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage in North Carolina 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 that life flings at them.

And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends, proving the enduring power of "teamwork," rally around 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 and a hilarious comedy about friendships that last forever. A new “Steel Magnolias”!

The Dixie Swim Club is under the direction of Bekki Jo Schneider.

The all female cast will include Tina Jo Wallace, Janet Essenpreis, Michelle Johnson, Rita Thomas and Jill Kelly.

The Dixie Swim Club was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, three of the most widely-produced comedic playwrights in America.
