Abilene, KS- Great Plains Theatre continues its 21st Season with the comedy The Dixie Swim Club at Abilene High School Auditorium, July 10-19. This heartwarming play, about friendship and the ties that bind, follows five friends who met on their college swim team. For a thirty-year span they reunite for one-weekend each summer, picking up where they left off and proving that good friends last a lifetime. The Dixie Swim Club is a celebration of the friends who become our family, written in the same vein as Steel Magnolias.
For tickets contact Great Plains Theatre at 785-263-4574. For further information about performance dates and times, as well as details about the rest of GPT’s exciting season, visit www.greatplainstheatre.com.
The production is directed by Great Plains Theatre’s Artistic Director Doug Nuttelman. Mark Warner will serve as Technical Director and Stage Manager. William Snyder will design the scenery and Becky Dibben will provide costumes.
The cast of The Dixie Swim Club will feature five performers, three of which will be familiar to Great Plains Theatre audiences. Laurie Pascale (Always…Patsy Cline, Steel Magnolias, Moonlight and Magnolias), Nikki Savitt (Rumors, Harvey) and Marcee Cosby (Over the River and Through the Woods) are joined by newcomers Kim Bogus and Deb Kennedy.
