Rogue Theater heats up summer with The Dixie Swim Club by Nicholas Hope, Jessie Jones and Jamie Wooten. Sponsored by the Women’s Fund of Door County, this all-female cast celebrates the best of women’s relationships.
The Dixie Swim Club is a play about the importance of women’s friendships, illustrated by five southern women, in four scenes, covering 33 years of their lives. These women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, 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.
As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges that life flings at them.
The cast includes Jen Birkholz, Lola DeVillers, Donna Johnson, Jamie Buesing and Debbie Finn. Together they are directed by Stuart Champeau and will perform Aug. 9-24. Shows are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday 2 pm, at Rogue Theater, 340 Jaycee Court. in Sturgeon Bay. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.
