The Dixie Swim Club focuses on five vibrant women who have called each other friends since their time spent together on a college swim team 33 years ago. Every year since graduation, they've kept their bond alive by spending a long summer weekend together at the same North Carolina beach cottage, leaving husbands, children and work behind to share in each other's challenges and triumphs. Spotlighting four specific weekends throughout the span of these 33 years, this poignant comedy is a blend of tender moments and raucous repartee that brings the beauty of lifelong friendships onto the stage and into the spotlight.

Quotes & Highlights
The original Broadway production of The Odd Couple ran for more than two years and 964 performances.
Set in a quintessential 8-room New York apartment, an unlikely pair of middle-aged roommates battle each other’s glaring quirks while being forced to reflect on their own. Oscar Madison, a carefree slob, and Felix Ungar, a neurotic neat freak, are thrown into sharing a home when their own are torn apart by divorce.
Reality sets in when Felix’s Mary Poppins lifestyle destroys the laid-back vibe of Oscar’s ultimate bachelor pad. This is a story of a friendship that defies all odds made its Broadway debut in 1965, won several Tony Award, including Best Play, and went on to great success in film and television.
“The Odd Couple is a face-paced, neurosis-filled brawl of a play,” says director Jim Ward. “Two friends have never been closer or farther apart – their polar opposite personalities fuel some of the most hysterical theater ever written.”
The cast includes Michael Lederman as Oscar Madison, Doug Mallon as Felix Ungar, Roxane Ashe as Cecily Pigeon, Patti Appel as Gwendolyn Pigeon, Steve Travis and Joe Guistano as Speed, John Szabo as Murray, Jack Weintraub as Roy, and Bob Mitton as Vinnie.
