March 16-18 2023 Spotlight Theater Players present Sweet Delilah Swim Club

Updated: Mar 3, 2023

Spotlight Theater Players present The Sweet Delilah Swim Club, a jones hope Wooten comedy March 16-18th at 7 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on the 18th at Wholly Ground Coffeehouse located at 27988 Walker South Rd in Walker, La. 70785.

This is a comedy about five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team. They set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage, the "Sweet Delilah, on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other's lives. THE SWEET DELILAH SWIM CLUB focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.

The show is sure to be a Spotlight Theater favorite. Christine Norred Brignac will direct the cast of five women including:

Sheree(Helene Wall), the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and "perfect" life, and continues to be the group's leader.

Dinah (Celeste Angelle Veillon), the wisecracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life.

Lexie(Susan Burdette), pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married-over and over and over again.

The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette (Jodie Guitreau), acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos.

And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal (Valerie Brubaker)experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise.

As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of "teamwork" rally round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. THE SWEET DELILAH SWIM CLUB is the story of these five unforgettable women- a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
