The Dixie Swim Club, Apr 2018

Our beloved theatre took significant damage due to Hurricane Harvey forcing us to postpone our 2017-2018 season. Through the support of our community, we are fortunate to be extended opportunities to perform as guests in facilities in the surrounding area.

Beaumont Community Players is one such friend. They have invited us into their home at the Betty Greenberg Center for Performing Arts to bring you “The Dixie Swim Club” – a Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy.

If you would like to donate to help our rebuilding efforts, you can do so via mail to: Orange Community Players, PO Box 442, Orange, Texas 77631 or through our website by returning to the previous page and clicking on the “Donate” button.

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. 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, is a career dynamo. But 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. 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 Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. 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…
