SYNOPSIS
THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB is about 5 Southern women whose friendships from their college swim team are recharged during a long weekend every August. 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. 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.

THE DIXIE SWIM CLUB is the story of five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…

CAST NOTES:
Characters: 5 Women (No roles have been pre-cast)

Sheree Hollinger--Perennial team captain, practical, supportive and a fount of boundless energy. Her tendency is to be hyper-organized occasionally drives her friends a bit crazy. She is 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 who has fought her way to the top and enjoys 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 from Chapel Hill, NC, Lexie is the vain, youth-obsessed event planner for a chain of 4-star hotels, who has her plastic surgeon on speed dial. Multiple marriages haven't tamed her appetite for male attention, and she'll be happy to share all her wild romantic exploits with anyone who will listen.
Jeri Neal McFeeley--The ditzy ray of sunshine in the group, Jeri Neal is perky, naive and always sees the positive side of everything. Having been a nun for years, she has been protected from the seamier side of life and while she appears to be predictable on the surface, Jeri Neal makes life choices that surprise and amaze even her closest friends.
Vernadette Simms- is a hard luck case if there ever was one. Marriage and motherhood came shortly after college, a dark cloud has hovered above her ever since. A public school teacher with limited financial resources, and a problematic home life in Spivey’s Corner, NC, Vernadette is self-deprecating by necessity. She faces her tribulations with gallows humor and the unwavering support of her lifelong friends.
