ACT-CO Festival Entry
I am looking for five (5) strong female actors!!!!
Auditions for the upcoming production of “The Dixie Swim Club” will be held at the Century Church Theatre on Friday, October 19, 2018 from 7:30 – 9:30 P.M.
March 15, 16, 22, 23, 2019
March 17 and 24, 2019
Blocking rehearsals will be held on Saturday, December 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. & Tuesday, December 11 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Rehearsals will resume on January 6, 2019 and be held (mostly on Sundays) from 12:30 to 6:00 p.m.
The all-female cast of five (5) consists of the following characters:
SHEREE – Team Captain, highly organized, eternal tomboy, health nut and all-American mom from Raleigh, North Carolina.
DINAH – wise-cracking cynic, ambitious, excellent at every-thing except romance, armed with a dry martini and an even dryer sense of humour.
LEXIE – a southern belle from Chapel Hill, North Carolina who keeps her cosmetic surgeon on speed dial and works as an event planner for a hotel chain.
JERI NEAL – became a nun on leaving college, the eternal optimist who has made some life choices that amaze her friends.
VERNADETTE – survives with the help of her teammates after an early and unfortunate marriage, always short of money having a gallows sense of humour with which she deals with life.
These five women were on their college swim team and on graduation agreed to meet annually each August in a rented cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In 4 scenes over the span of 30 years, we learn of and share in their lives and loves, their successes and failures, all told with humour and pathos.
Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Sides are available upon request. Please contact Nick Forrow at firstname.lastname@example.org for sides or any additional information.
