SYNOPSIS

Their college swim team days are over, but the bond they made is unbreakable. THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB is the touching and hilarious story of five very different women who meet every August at a beach house to rekindle their relationship. Free from husbands, careers, and kids, their long weekends bring love, challenges, and support, strengthening the connections they made those many years ago. Fans of Steel Magnolias and The Golden Girls will adore this outrageous comedy about friendships that last forever.

AVAILABLE ROLES

  • Sheree: the spunky team captain. Desperately tries to maintain her organized and “perfect” life and continues to be the group’s leader.
  • Dinah: the wisecracking overachiever. A career dynamo. Her victories in the courtroom are 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. She enjoys being married—over and over and over again.
  • Vernadette: self-deprecating and acerbic. Acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life and has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos.
  • Jeri Neal: sweet, eager-to-please. Experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise.
