Winter may have held on a little longer this season but the Prince Edward Community Theatre group are promising a welcome dose of warmer weather their their latest production Sweet Delilah Swim Club.
This beautifully written, taut play by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten tells the story of five members of a championship women’s swim team who gather each year at the same beach cottage, the Sweet Delilah on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, to catch up, have fun and stick their noses in each other’s lives.
The ride through those decades is a fabulous journey as their lives and careers evolve, husbands come and go, or linger, health issues begin to surface and their friendships overcome the usual challenges related to jealousy, misunderstandings and romances.
Hosted at Mount Tabor Playhouse, one of Prince Edward County’s most beloved and venerable venues, the comedy features five theatrical veterans in Cheryl Singer, Lesley Snyder, Paulina McMahon, Susie Mitchell and Lynne Donovan.
PECT Producer Mike Writes promises this performance will provide a great night out for those who have been cooped up too long during the dregs of the last few years of maybe even a classic ‘Girls night out’ that is sure to have side splitting laughter all the way through the evening.
“We’re excited to offer this Deb Smith-directed production opening April 15 at 7:30 p.m.” Trites said.”The last few years have been tough on all of us putting on live performances so it’s with great enthusiasm we present Sweet Delilah Swim Club.”
The show runs April 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 with the 16 and 23 dates as 2 p.m. matinees.
