Auditions for Theatre Longview’s summer show, Dixie Swim Club are getting closer! Dixie Swim Club is a heartwarming comedy by Jones - Hope - Wooten about five women whose friendship knows no end. Once upon a time, they were on a swim team together. Now, every summer, they meet at a beach cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We see these women in their 30s, 50s, and 70s throughout the show. We are looking for ladies 17+ to come and be a part of this unique and amazing experience!
Auditions will be Thursday, June 13th and Friday, June 14th from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at First Lutheran Church, 3901 Bill Owens Parkway in Longview, TX.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the show, which will be provided for you upon arrival. Just bring yourself, and some of your girlfriends who would like to have some fun this summer!
SHEREE HOLLINGER: the perennial team captain. She’s practical, supportive, and very energetic. She is never without her to-do lists or Pocket Scheduler, and her tendency to be hyper-organized occasionally drives her friends a bit crazy. She’s the eternal tomboy, a health nut, and all-American mom who lives in Raleigh, NC, with her family.
DINAH GRAYSON: the wise-cracking cynic of the group who has fought her way to the top and relishes the view. She’s a lawyer in the biggest and most prestigious law firm in Atlanta and excels at everything...except romance. Armed with a dry martini and an even drier sense of humor, she rarely reveals her softer side and tackles life head on.
LEXIE RICHARDS: a true Southern belle who lives on Chapel Hill, NC. She’s a vain, youth-obsessed event planner for a chain of four-star hotels. She’s never shied away from the occasional nip or tuck and keeps cosmetic surgery on speed dial. She’s always one to revel in her status as a man-magnet and can be counted on to share wild and hilarious tales of her romantic exploits.
JERI NEAL MCFEELEY: the ditzy ray of sunshine of the group. She’s perky, naïve, and always sees the positive side of everything. Having been a nun for many years, she has been protected from life’s seamier side. Even though she appears to be predictable on the surface, she recently relocated to Charlottesville, VA, and continually makes life choices that surprise and amaze her friends.
VERNADETTE SIMS: a hard luck case if there ever was one. Marriage and motherhood came shortly after college and a dark cloud has hovered over her ever since. A public school teacher with limited finances and a problematic home life in Spivey’s Corner, NC, she is self-deprecating by necessity. She faces her tribulations with human and unwavering support of these lifelong friends.
LADIES!! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we hope to see you there!
