In the ‘swim’ of things

The newest production of the Webster City Community Theatre will premiere Friday.

"The Dixie Swim Club" is set to run Friday through Sunday and the weekend after from Feb. 14 to 16. The play will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. on Sundays.

According to a WCCT release, the play is about five southern women whose friendship began many years ago on their college swim team. These women set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's outer banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other's lives. "The Dixie Swim Club" focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.
