Five Southern 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. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. 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 (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of "teamwork," rally 'round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever...

Hope Bailey, Damon Barnett, Randy Benge, Francesca DiFrancesco, AvaMarie Hedrick, Brian Henry, Lynne Rouzer Hull, Mackenzie Joseph, Jeff Kemeter, Grace Koegler, Chris Metzger, Joci Scott, & Natalie Tangeman

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters - sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne - after their father's sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. Sense and Sensibility examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?

Mr. Morlock is a fidgety, grouchy old fellow who doesn't like anything but money and won't let his daughter marry Joe Laconi because he's poor. So when Joe's papa, Luigi, comes over to plead his son's case, the two men start feuding and Mr. Morlock says if Mary weds Joe, it'll be over his dead body! Luigi says if they don't get married it'll be over his! When Luigi has a heart attack, the feud appears over. But Luigi gets permission from "up there" to come back and haunt Mr. Morlock and continue haunting him until he gives the kids his blessing. Mr. Morlock is frenzied! Luigi's ghost, visible only to Morlock, kicks him off the couch, pulls the covers off him, kicks him in the seat, flirts with his secretary, and cavorts around in a fashion that would put most ghosts to shame. Poor Mr. Morlock, the entire family thinks he's lost his few remaining marbles. In his despair, he accidentally takes too many sleeping pills. Then it happens. He, too, kicks the bucket. But Mr. Morlock refuses to leave earth until things are settled to his satisfaction, and of course, Luigi says he will not rest in peace until Mary and Joe are married. Unfortunately, life in Mr. Morlock's home goes on as if nothing happened and for the first time ever, Mr. Morlock realizes his mistakes and begs for another chance.

When four lost New Englanders who enroll in Marty's six-week-long community-center drama class begin to experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart, and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won.

Nat Paradis is a Red Sox-loving part-time dad who manages Paradis's Last Convenient Store, the last convenient place to get gas - or anything - before the Canadian border to the north and the North Maine Woods to the west. When an old flame returns to town, Nat gets a chance to rekindle a romance he gave up on years ago. But sparks fly as he's forced to choose between new love and old. Last Gas takes a hilarious and heartbreakingly hard look at love lost and found, and at what it means to "get back to happy."

Due to adult themes and situations, this show is recommended for mature audiences.
