MCT is thrilled to bring the director and cast back from the popular January production of The Dixie Swim Club for our Summer Reading.
The Dixie Swim Club is the story of five Southern women, friends since their days on a college swim team, gather every year for a long weekend - no husbands, no kids, no work involvement-- in a beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks. Here they laugh, catch up and meddle in each other's lives. The women, whose lives have taken them in vastly different directions since they left college, help each other get through the challenges of life: motherhood, men, divorce, marriage, jobs, aging, with hilarious and touching repartee. As their lives unfold, we learn that true friendships last forever.

A diva actress is barely tolerant of her philandering semi-alcoholic husband in this raucous farce about a dysfunctional theatre troupe at the Erlander Theatre in 1953 Buffalo, NY. Mishaps and confusion arise when they hear famed film director Frank Capra may attend a show to possibly cast the two in movies. Will they get the audition and give a performance of a lifetime? Find out in this fast-paced funny backstage comedy.
