Possums’ ‘Dixie Swim Club’ making a summer splash

GEORGETOWN – Summer is almost here and it’s time to hit the beach for a “group swim” with the Possum Point Players’ presentation of “The Dixie Swim Club.”

Show dates for this funny and touching play are June 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16.  Theatre goers are advised to purchase tickets early; the June 9 matinee is already sold out.

Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

Tickets – $20 for adults and $19 for seniors and students – may be purchased at www.possumpointplayers.org or by calling 856-4560.

“The Dixie Swim Club” follows the lives of five women who first came together as members of their college swim club. The friendships formed then kept them tied together for the rest of their lives and they keep it that way with an everlasting knot of an annual reunion at the beach on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.

The play spans 33 years of the lives of these strong, spunky, yet loving and sympathetic, southern women – Sheree, Dinah, Lexie, Vernadette and Jeri Neal. They joke, tease, disagree and always support each other. “The Dixie Swim Club” is full of laughs and sighs and life.

The cast includes Cat Baker of Georgetown, Beth DiGrasso and Cheryl Graves of Rehoboth Beach, Jill Lewandowski of Milford and Audrey Killen of Roxanna.

Helen Barlow of Georgetown is director.

The show focuses on four of the reunion weekends and takes the friends from their 40s into their 70s. Although each life takes turns and ups and downs, some characteristics stay consistent through the years.
