Five southern women who were college swim teammates meet one long weekend every

August in the same beach cottage in North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. The show focuses on four of those weekends, and spans a period of thirty-three years.


The Dixie Swim Club is the story of five

unforgettable women--a hilarious and

touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

Deathtrap is a play written by Ira Levin in 1978 with many plot twists and which references itself as a play within a play. It holds the record for the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway and was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play. Deathtrap was well received by many and has been frequently revived. It was adapted into a film starring Christopher Reeve,
Michael Caine, and Dyan Cannon in 1982

“In Deathtrap... the basic components of thrillers and horror stories; murder, deceit, innocent dialogue with hidden sinister meanings, plot reversals, unexpected turns of events, etc., and twisted and rearranged the pieces again and again."

Bridget and her Grandmother are about to
become roommates. However, what Bridget saw as a unique opportunity to stay with her favorite Nana in New York for the summer quickly turns into an experience she’ll never forget. It seems her sweet Grandma is running an illegal boutique from her apartment, selling hand-made naughty knickers to every senior citizen in the five borough area!

Will Bridget be able to handle all the
excitement? Will her Nana get arrested - or worse! - evicted?

The Music Man
By Meredith Willson

 By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize - this despite the fact he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.

The Music Man beat West Side Story in 1958 for the Tony Award for Best Musical!
