Synopsis: In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate - and an impromptu happy hour - and decide it's high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they've lost through the years! Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends. So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers!” to this joyful and surprisingly touching Jones, Hope, Wooten comedy!

Suburban Trends article about the partnership between Weis and Iron Mountain; two local non-profits working together!
Written by Jones Hope Wooten, directed by Jill Mcdonald, this charming and touching comedy "The Dixie Swim Club" was a big hit throughout it's 6-performance run at Weis.
Synopsis: 5 southern women, whose friendship began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on 4 of those weekends and spans a period of 33 years.
"A Holiday Mix" Audiences shared the holiday magic as Iron Mountain presented a special mix of holiday traditions, stories and songs, with a special bell choir performance!
Iron Mountain's second production at their new home base was the laugh out loud adult comedy: "Men are Dogs", written by Joe Simonelli and directed by John V. Santalla. The playwright made a special appearance at one of the performances and delighted the crowd with a question and answer session.
Synopsis: Cecelia is a successful psychologist who runs a support group for single and divorced women. She's got troubles of her own, but it's her ensemble of neurotic patients who provide the action when a "volunteer" role-player becomes the hapless victim of their not-inconsiderable ire.
Iron Mountain Stage Company presented their first show at Weis in the Fall of 2016: “The Witch in 204”, a comedy written by Barbara Pease Weber. Barbara is a (somewhat local) Pennsylvania writer who Iron Mountain has come to know over the past several years, as they have performed three other of her comedies (Delval Divas, HOGWASH!, Seniors of the Sahara.) The show was directed by Ringwood resident and Iron Mountain Trustee Jill McDonald, stage managed by Marijane Santalla, and performed by talented local amateur actors.
Synopsis: Latch your windows! Bolt your door! Beware of The Witch in 204! You know your property value has plummeted when a witch moves in next door! But that’s not retired schoolteacher Sylvie Goldberg’s only trouble. Sylvie’s hopes of living happily-ever-after with Eugene, the “otherworldly” gentleman of her dreams, soon dissipate when the witch next door, Bella, turns out to be Eugene’s mysterious former paramour, who proceeds to wreak havoc on Sylvie and Eugene’s wedding day as the uninvited guest.
We are proud to partner with Iron Mountain Stage Company, a non-profit performing arts company bringing community theater to our area continuously since 1993. They perform a spring and fall play at Weis, with performances in our main building. They are also a featured guest during our summer and school break camps, guiding children through improv, sound and movement activities that help them build confidence and tap into their creativity. Iron Mountain also presents improv workshops and a lovely multi-cultural holiday show. Reservations for shows and events are suggested, but tickets may also be purchased at the door.
