This is the final weekend to see The Dixie Swim Club at DCP Theater in Telford, PA (795 Ridge Road);

Five Southern women, whose friendships began years ago on their college swim team, set aside a weekend every August to recharge. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage in the Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. This story focuses on four of those weekends over a span of thirty-three years. When fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends, proving the enduring power of teamwork, rally around their own with strength and love.

This is the only weekend to take the family to see Once on This Island, Jr, staged by Star of the Day Productions’ youth performers at McCoole’s Arts and Events Place, 10 Main Street, Quakertown, PA;

Once on this Island, JR. is an adaptation of the celebrated Broadway musical. This rousing Calypso-flavored tale follows one small girl who finds love in a world of prejudice. Once on This Island is an engaging, Caribbean-flavored musical set on an unnamed island in the French Antilles. The story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who falls in love above her class, is told around a fire by a group of Caribbean peasants as they wait out a terrible storm.​
With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored musical score, Once on This Island JR. is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens and Flaherty.
