NewsLady Posted March 17, 2017 Share Posted March 17, 2017 Real Live Theater shines at the BCP With The Dixie Swim Club we can say that real live theater has taken hold once again at BCP. Under the professional direction of Gabrielle Reynolds, we are treated to a story that will resonate with many of us in Boquete. Five ladies, one a fallen nun, bonded in their teen years as members of a swim team, return every year to the same cottage on the Outer Banks. In four short acts, the play arcs from 1984 to 2017, bringing the characters right up to today. At times funny and ultimately touching, we can all relate to the passage of our lives and those of our friends. And the characters are our friends, people we know from our own community, which is what makes live theater so special. The ensemble cast is led by BCP veterans Louis Orr and Linda Miller. Gabriella Reynolds, who is the director and also plays the fallen nun, is a newcomer to Boquete but not the stage. Tina Hoenig and Mamie Brisker Pettit, are welcome new additions to the stable of BCP acting talent. I hope we see more of all of them in the future as Gabrielle builds our theater to become once again a shining star in our Boquete life. Let’s face it - live theater at the BCP is among the best entertainment to be found in Boquete. We should all celebrate the huge effort it takes to mount a stage play and the herculean effort and courage it takes to act in one. Everyone involved in this play, onstage and off, should be very proud of what they have created for our entertainment. Dixie Swim Club is an excellent addition to the storied history of the BCP, so come on down and check it out - laugh, cry and clap for the five women in a cottage.
