Lee Street theatre opens its 10th Anniversary Season with the hysterical southern comedy, Dixie Swim Club directed by Kindra Steenerson Clyne. 


Five unforgettable women, free from husbands, kids and jobs, meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives over 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 that life flings at them with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction.


Performances run August 24-26 & August 31-September 2 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15+tax and will be available in July online at www.leestreet.org or via phone 704-310-5507.


Character descriptions are as follows:


SHEREE HOLLINGER, the perennial team captain, is practical, supportive and a fount of boundless energy.

DINAH GRAYSON, the wise-cracking cynic of the group, has fought her way to the top and relished the view.

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.

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. 

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.
