Suburban Trends article about the partnership between Weis and Iron Mountain; two great 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.
