“The Dixie Swim Club” has surfaced on the Long Lake Theater stage.

Directed by longtime Long Lake Theater veteran Julie Kjenaas, this show guarantees belly laughs. “This is a chick flick for the stage and a gold mine of witty comebacks. It’s been very popular all over the country and I’m elated that we’re doing it this summer. Julie knows just what to do with a script like this,” says Bruce Bolton, theater manager

The play follows five women from a college swim team as they reconnect each summer at the North Carolina beach. They celebrate the joys and problems of children, marriage, career choices and aging, with a hurricane thrown in for good measure.

There are a few sight gags and outrageous situations, but most of the humor comes from the great writing of playwrights Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.

Show times are 3 p.m. Wednesday and 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Long Lake Theater is south of Park Rapids, in the village of Hubbard.  Call 732-0099 or check out for tickets and more information.
