The cast of 'Dixie Swim Club' at Surrey Little Theatre.

The stage is set for Surrey Little Theatre’s new season of plays.

The comedy “Dixie Swim Club” opens tonight (Oct. 20) at the Clayton-area theatre.

The play, by Jones, Hope and Wooten, runs until Nov. 19 on a Thursday-to-Saturday schedule, with shows starting at 8 p.m. Also, Sunday matinees will be performed on Oct. 30, Nov. 6 and Nov. 13, starting at 2 p.m.

The Mike Busswood-directed comedy is about five southern women whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team. They meet at the same beach cottage every year to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. The bonds of friendship and team camaraderie stay with them through the good times and bad; through love and loss; in sickness and in health.

Show tickets are available online at Brownpapertickets.com, or call 604-576-8451. Details can be found at Surreylittletheatre.com.

Looking ahead, Surrey Little Theatre’s “winter show” is “Twelve Angry Men,” staged from Jan. 26 to Feb. 25, followed in the spring by Joan McLeod’s “Homechild.”
