DIXIE SWIM CLUB Runs 6/3-18 at Arts Center of Cannon County


"Friendships can last a lifetime if you tend to them" - that's the message of The Dixie Swim Club -latest southern-fried comedy from Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten onstage June 3-18 at Woodbury's Arts Center of Cannon County.

Donald Fann directs this play about five southern women whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team. 

Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, the women meet every summer at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The show focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of 33 years. The ensemble cast includes Marcia Melton, Melanie Nistad, Jacqueline LeDuc, Candi Ford and Karen Wainright.

Jones/Hope/Wooten comprise the creative team behind Dearly Beloved, 'Til Beth Do Us Part and Christmas Belles, all of which have been produced by numerous theater companies throughout the region.
