Laugh, cry and feel great with The Dixie Swim Club

DixieSW300Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. 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.

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 (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of "teamwork," rally 'round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The story of these five unforgettable women—a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

Welcome to!

To celebrate being a proud Canadian community theatre, WCT’s website has moved to .ca! This initiative has been in the works for over a year now. We could have simply switched the address and moved on, but we wanted to do more than celebrate being Canadian, we wanted to deliver a new, stylish and easy to navigate site full of great new features!

WCT is lucky enough to have its own in-house web team. Without these dedicated people, this project would not have been possible. The Board of Directors send a huge thank you to the following: 

   • Brandon Rideout (site development, design and content population)
   • Edward Niles (site design and content population)
   • Mike Cote (technical support and site hosting)

Over the next few months, we will be continuing to populate the new site with the over 8,000 images, developing more online tools and forms, and of course keeping it up-to-date with all of our current production information.

Please feel free to let us know if there are things you would like to see. A website is only successful when it meets the needs of its visitors.
