OF THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB
June 2, 6, 8 & 9 at The Rex Theatre!
THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB opened last night, May 30th at the Rex and the reviews are in: “I LOVED the show,” ”The set is AMAZING,” “I felt like I was at the beach with them!” are just a few of the rave reviews we got this morning! You really don’t want to miss this fantastic show!
The story revolves around five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, who 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. Directed by Karen Stevens, THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB stars Theatre Guild favorites Stephannie Dees, Sandra Hankley and Mandi McCraw. Rounding out the cast are newcomers Laura Coleman-Bunyan and Paula DuPrey. Make plans today to bring your best friends and join these beach buddies for an evening of laughter at the Rex.
