donna scott productions announces 2010 show: The Dixie Swim Club
The producer and creator of both The Body Chronicles (awards: Creative Loafing Best Original Show and Metrolina Theatre Association Best Special Event) and The Fairy Tale Chronicles (awards: Metrolina Theatre Association Outstanding Original Play), donna scott productions is excited to announce the June 2010 Charlotte premiere production of The Dixie Swim Club by North Carolina playwrights Nicholas Hope, Jessie Jones and Jamie Wooten.
The Dixie Swim Club follows five college friends on their annual beach trip to the Outer Banks and focuses on four of those weekends while spanning 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 wise-cracking overachiever, is a career dynamo 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. 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 Sister Jeri Neal enters with a surprise that sends her life down the road not taken. 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, and aging) that life flings at them. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of five unforgettable women – a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever. Tonya Bludsworth, Stephanie Dipaolo, Chandler McIntyre, Donna Scott and Sheila Snow Proctor comprise the cast; Polly Adkins will make her Charlotte directing debut.
The Dixie Swim Club is a project in a continued partnership with Theater Charlotte and Ron Law, Executive Director at Theatre Charlotte. The Dixie Swim Club will be presented at Theatre Charlotte, 501 Queens Road, and will open June 10, 2010 and run thru June 26, 2010. Tickets are $24 adult, $20 senior and $10 student and can be purchased at carolinatix.org; group discounts available.
