The show is not part of the normal subscription season, but as a thank-you to our subscribers (2014-15 or 2015-16), we are pleased to offer tickets for this production – as many as you like – at 25% off!

Dixie Swim Club @ Swift Creek Mill Theatre

A comedy about growing old together! Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. A hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever. If you loved “The Golden Girls”, then you’ll love these girls, too!
