"Dixie Swim Club" Cast Announced

Posted: Friday, June 19, 2020, 7:24am

Director Cathy Cordy has announced the cast for The Dixie Swim Club, the first production of Curtain Players's 2020-2021 season, following auditions on June 14.

Congratulations to Gail Stewart (as Vernadette), Lynne Hull (as Lexie), Julie Emmert-Silvius (as Jeri Neal) Sharifa Andrews (as Sheree) and Cheryl Nelson (as Dinah).

The Dixie Swim Club by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, & Jamie Wooten, follows five Southern women, who met on their college swim team, through four reunion weekends spanning thirty-three years. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outerbanks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other's lives. As the year's pass, they face the challenges of life (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, and more) together in this hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

The Dixie Swim Club opens September 11 and runs through September 27, with shows scheduled Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m, and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets will go on sale later this summer.
