Dixie Swim Club is a delightful summer comedy about five female friends supporting each other through life’s ups and downs. The play spans thirty years of the women’s lives. Our director is looking to cast women who are comfortable with comedy in the 40-50 age range. Casting is open to all ethnicities. Equity actors will be engaged under an Equity Contract.
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, NC 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, NC. Lexie 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: She is the ditzy ray of sunshine of the group. She’s perky and naive 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, VA and continually makes life choices that surprise and amaze her friends.
Vernadette Simms: She is a hard luck case if there every 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, NC, Vernadette is self-depreciating by necessity. She faces her tribulations with gallows humor and the unwavering support of these lifelong friends.
