Old Opera House Premieres DIXIE SWIM CLUB Through 5/16
The Old Opera House presents the comedy/drama play The Dixie Swim Club May 7th through May 16th. The Dixie Swim Club is written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, which previously brought Christmas Belles and Dearly Beloved to the Old Opera House.
The Dixie Swim Club is about five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team. They 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.Director David Porterfield, who directed last season's Leading Ladies, has assembled a cast of actresses, including Amy Barley, Christine Brewer, Elizabeth Egan, Bettina Fiery and Robin Tatina. Performances run during the weekends with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 PM and Sunday matinee performances at 2:30 PM. Adult evening performance tickets are $17 and matinees are $15. Student tickets are $8 at all performances.
