The Dixie Swim Club at NCSU’s “Southern Comfort”-themed Theatrefest 2011
Theatrefest 2011 at University Theatre, NCSU
Through June 12
Your enjoyment of The Dixie Swim Club, the first entry in N.C. State University’s “Southern Comfort”-themed Theatrefest 2011, will depend on how many times you’ve seen this story before. There have been many tales of Southern women holding on to lifelong friendships throughout ups and downs, Steel Magnolias being perhaps the best-known example. This particular interpretation does nothing innovative to the concept, but for some audience members, it’s a serviceable introduction to this oft-told tale.
