Claire Giroux-Williams takes the stage mid-April in Shelburne Players’ spring production of “The Dixie Swim Club.” The comedy, written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten, revolves around five unique southern women and their annual reunions over a period of 33 years at the same beach cottage. Giroux-Williams plays the role of Dinah, a lawyer, who is the wise-cracking cynic of the group.

Born and raised in South Carolina, Giroux-Williams moved to Vermont, with her wife Cori, 11 years ago. She currently resides in South Burlington and has worked at Champlain College, the American Cancer Society, and the Humane Society of Chittenden County. Having first appeared in a Shelburne Players’ production of “Calendar Girls” in 2015, Giroux-Williams notes she is excited to return to work with “such a great group of people.”

“Shelburne Players has done a great job choosing a play full of laughs and heart. The five characters represent a spectrum yet balance each other perfectly. The southern setting is a nice change and oozes southern charm,” says Giroux-Williams.

“The Dixie Swim Club” is produced by Sue Martin and directed by Liz Fotouhi. The play comes to Shelburne Town Center stage, 5420 Shelburne Road, with performances April 13, 14, 19, 20, and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m. “If you are a fan of the Golden Girls,” says Giroux-Williams, “This is the play for you.”
