It's December 1942, and New York's little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade. That's the setting for The 1940's Radio Hour, a timeless play full of classic tunes sung in four- and five-part harmony. With its dance routines, swinging music -- including "Ain't She Sweet," "Blue Moon," "You Go to My Head" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" -- and beloved cast of characters, Radio Hour is a perfect holiday treat.

This was a fun evening for my mom and I to enjoy together. The five women that made up the cast enjoyed what they were doing and did it well. Sadly there was a very small audience so there was little laughter when there was a funny line and that had to make it hard for them to play to the audience. There weren't enough of us to give them the feedback they deserved. Go, I think you'll enjoy it and you'll be supporting our local theater.
San Diego’s newest theatrical group Different Stages is moving into The AVO Playhouse for eight performances of the hilarious bittersweet comedy The Dixie Swim Club, written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. This play is making successful runs around the country and is now making its San Diego area premiere.
Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August at a beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to recharge those relationships. The play 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 that life flings at them.
The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever. The Dixie Swim Club is geared for general audiences; if you enjoyed Steel Magnolias and Fried Green Tomatoes, this might be just right for you. The play deals with marriage, sex, parenting, divorce and aging that will touch your funny bone and your heart for both men and women.
The play features local actresses Naomi Olson, Sharon Kloosterman, Lailani Dana, Joanne Kissinger and Sandy Agan. The production is directed by Jerry Pilato.
