Lamplighter’s Community Theatre is staging several comedies this year that do not shy away from serious themes. “Chapter Two,” “Duck Hunter Shoots Angel,” and the summer production of “The Dixie Swim Club” tug at the heartstrings while still featuring witty humor.
“The Dixie Swim Club” centers around five Southern women who met when they were members of a college swim team. After graduation, the confidants continue to catch up with each other every August at a beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
They talk about everything from men to work. As 33 years pass, their bond continues to deepen.
