SYNOPSIS:

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.  The characters in this play will be portrayed at ages 44, 49, 54, and 77. 

 

SEEKING:

SHEREE HOLLINGER, the perennial team captain, is practical, supportive and a fount of boundless energy.  Never without her to-do lists or Pocket Scheduler, her tendency to be hyper-organized occasionally drives her friends a bit crazy.  She’s the eternal tomboy, a health nut and an all-American mom who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her family.

 

DINAH GRAYSON, the wise-cracking cynic of the group, has fought her way to the top and relishes the view.  A lawyer in the biggest and most prestigious law firm in Atlanta, Dinah excels at everything … except romance.  Armed with a dry martini and an even drier sense of humor, Dinah seldom reveals her softer side as she tackles life head-on.

 

LEXIE RICHARDS, a true Southern belle who lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is the vain, youth-obsessed event planner for a chain of four-star hotels.  She has never shied away from the occasional nip or tuck and keeps her cosmetic surgeon on speed dial.  Always one to revel in her status as a man-magnet, Lexie can be counted on to share wild and hilarious tales of her romantic exploits.

 

JERI NEAL MCFEELEY, is the ditzy ray of sunshine of the group.  She’s perky and naïve and always sees the positive side of everything.  Having been a nun for many years, Jeri Neal has been protected from life’s seamier side.  Even though she appears to be predictable on the surface, Jeri Neal recently relocated to Charlottesville, Virginia, continually makes life choices that surprise and amaze her friends.

 

VERNADETTE SIMMS, is a hard luck case if there ever was one.  Marriage and motherhood came shortly after college, a dark cloud has hovered above her ever since.  A public-school teacher, with limited finances and a problematic home life in Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina, Vernadette is self-deprecating by necessity.  She faces her tribulations with gallows humor and the unwavering support of these lifelong friends.

 

PREPARATION:
1. A one minute comedic monologue appropriate for the characters we’re seeking.  Material from film and television is acceptable.

 

COMPENSATION: $500 per week
