THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB will be perfomed from June 11th to the 26th on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm and Saturday matinees at 3pm. The show is about five Southern women, whose friendship began on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend each year to recharge that friendship. Free from men, kids, and jobs, they meet every August at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's outer banks to laugh, catch up, and meddle in each other's lives.

'TIL BETH DO US PART will run from July 9th to the 24th on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm and Saturday matinees at 3pm. This show offers a hilarious look at a marriage turned upside down. Gibby and Suzannah Hayden have been together twenty-seven years when another woman, Suzannah's new assistant, Beth, enters the picture and wreaks havoc on their lives. Surprisingly, Beth isn't after Suzannah's husband; she wants her career. And this Southern-fried Mary Poppins from Hell will stop at nothing to achieve her goal.

MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW, THE STORY OF THE STANLEY BROTHERS was written by Douglas Pote and will be directed by Jimmy O. Burdette. It will run from August 6th to the 21st with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8pm and Saturday matinee performances at 3pm. This funny and touching story delves into the backstage and personal life of two brothers, Ralph and Carter Stanley. It contains some of the great songs made famous by The Stanley Brothers. It reveals their struggle to find an audience for their music. Folk, traditional gospel, and bluegrass were the music of their home in the hills of Virginia and they remained loyal to their roots. It includes their 2002 Grammy Award-winning songs from the movie "O Brother, Where Art Thou"? It stars Upstate Bluegrass Musicians Mitch and Perry Keown. There will also be a pre-show featuring the Jimmy O Trio.
