Week two of The Dixie Swim Club is in full swing!

WCT18 DSC HomePagePhotoFive 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.

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. 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.

Introducing... The Producers of The Dixie Swim Club

WCT18 DSC DixieProducers

Geneviève Hébert-Carr joined the WCT Youth Group at age 15 and Melissa in 2004’s Crimes of the Heart. Their paths didn’t cross until The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee where the two were cast as the unscripted roles of the ‘student ambassadors’ who prowled the lobby every night before each run looking for unwitting audience volunteers to participate as spellers in the show.

It was working as a team that cemented their friendship, and Mel and Gen went on to appear together in subsequent WCT productions such as Cabaret, Monty Python’s Spamalot, and Things My Mother Taught Me. But their reunion in WCT’s upcoming comedy, The Dixie Swim Club sees this dynamic duo cast in their most challenging roles to-date – producers.
