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, 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…
Sheree – (30’s-40’s) The spunky team captain, desperately trying to maintain her organized and ‘perfect’ life. The groups leader. Athletic and a health food fanatic.
Lexie – (30’s-40’s) Pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. Enjoys being married—over and over again.
Vernadette – (30’s-40’s) Acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life. She has decided to just give in to the chaos.
Jeri Neal – (30’s-40’s) Former Nun, sweet and eager to please. Comes into motherhood late in life.
Dinah – (30’s-40’s) A Wisecracking overachiever career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life.

Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a hilarious number of difficulties.
Audition are April 15 and 16 at Barnstormers Theatre at 6:00pm. We are looking for: 3 men, 2 women.
Gillian is a beautiful intelligent, likable and seductive 25 to 40 year old. She speaks. volumes with her eyes.

Nicky is Gillian’s slightly younger brother. He is engaging, impish with an importunate personality.
Miss Holroyd, Gillian’s aunt, is an odd-looking, lovable. woman. Vague, fluttery and eccentric. (think Aunt Clara from Bewitched).
