Dixie Swim Club Opens Lofte's 37th Season

The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley is excited to open its doors for its thirty-seventh season on Saturday, May 25 with the female comedy, "Dixie Swim Club."  Written by the team of Jones, Hope and Wooten, 'Dixie' is the story of five southern women whose friendship began while on their college swim team.  Now, years later, they set aside one long weekend every August to recharge relationships and meddle in each other's lives.

 

Directed by Kevin Colbert, the five 'Dixie' women are played by Allison Bauers of Louisville, Sharon Strassler Kryger of La Vista, Betty Colbert of Weeping Water and Dawn Holdorf and Hope Hibler both of Manley.  Production dates are May 25, 26, 31, June 1, 2 and 6-9.  All seats are reserved and tickets are $17.  Season ticket packages are on sale through June 9 for only $65.  A season ticket includes one pass to each of the upcoming shows in 2013 including 'Dixie Swim Club,' 'The Producers,' 'The Boys Next Door,' 'Nunset Boulevard,' and 'The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.'

The Lofte is located just east of the intersection of highways 1 and 50 near the town of Manley.  You can reach the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit www.lofte.com
