MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The ‘Dixie Swim Club’ is making a splash on the Lake Superior Theatre’s stage.
'Dixie Swim Club' follows five college swim teammates as they meet at the same cottage every August to honor their friendship and catch up.
Director Denise Clark says, "It's another southern drama with a comedy with some depth."
The play follows five college swim teammates as they meet at the same cottage every August to honor their friendship and catch up. Throughout the show we see four of the weekends they share together.
Jaqueline Love, playing Sheree, explains, "We see the characters at 44, 49, 54 and then in their 70s. We see how their lives evolve, how their relationships change and how they all help each other through it."
"This play really explores the acceptance of the differences as you age," said Clark.
‘Dixie Swim Club’ highlights the special relationships between women at all ages.
"Women tend to rely on each other and confide in each other more and it just really shows the closeness that develops over time,” said Bridgette Jaakola, playing Vernadette. “You know, when your friends become your family and these women have known each other more than half their lives."
The cast says everyone will take something from this show regardless of age or gender.
"It's such a funny show but it's also really touching. I think men and women will actually take different things away from it," said Jaakola.
Performances are August 13th through the 16th and 20th through the 23rd at 7:30 p.m., and August 18th and 25th at 3:00 p.m. at Lake Superior Theatre.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students and $7.50 for youth 14 and under. Available at all NMU ticketing outlets.
