Sometimes a theater experience raptures you, and “Dixie Swim Club,” which recently opened in Cambria at the Pewter Plough Playhouse, did that for many of us who had the pleasure of attending opening night.

It’s constantly and deeply funny, and the characters are well played.

The choreography — which presents the life of five high school swim team best friends whose rendezvous at a beach cabin every few years reveals not only their individual life trials, but also the unexpected union they share as they enter their mid-70s — is phenomenal.

This play is an upper, filled with retrospect about where life leads us.

Kudos to Director Kelli Howard, the exceptional actors and the crew! Don’t miss it!

Linda Owen, Los Osos
