The Dixie Swim Club

Comedy. Recommended for adults and older teens.

Friends since they were on the same swim team in college, five southern ladies meet once a year in August to recharge “The Dixie Swim Club.” We enjoy four weekends with them over a thirty-year span. And four wonderful weekends they are. Each weekend filled with laughter, surprises (both welcome and not-so-welcome), a few tears, and life changes that touch our hearts and our funny bones. What joy for them! What joy for us!

Suite Surrender

Comedy. Recommended for adults and older teens.

It’s 1942 and two of Holywood’s biggest female movie stars (divas to you and me) are booked into the Palm Beach Royale Hotel. They cannot stand each other and that really is too bad since they are both booked into the hotel’s only celebrity suite. The laughter grows at a breakneck pace and bell boys, house maids, managers, and even Mr. Boodles try to sort things out and prevent bloodshed.Think of those great comedies of the 30s and 40s.

Always Patsy Cline

Musical. Recommended for adults and older teens.

This musical is based on the true story of singer Patsy Cline’s friendship with Houston housewife, Louise Seger. Patsy Cline is, of course, the great country singer who crossed over to pop standards and set the bar for women singers of her time. Filled with Patsy’s great hits – Anytime, Walking After Midnight, She’s Got You, Sweet Dreams, Crazy – this show provides a beautiful evening as Patsy’s music fills the theatre with humor, with sadness and with love.

It’s Philadelphia. It’s the 1960’s and two men are seeking their party’s nomination for president. But wait, are dirty politics unfolding right before our very eyes? Indeed, they are! “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” Enjoy this back-stage view of back-stabbing, crooked deals, and all that makes political life worth living. Great characters, great plot and great drama are all in this play that won six Tony nominations and became an all-star movie.
