ALTON, IL (KTVI)-For 82 seasons, the Alton Little Theater has been entertaining residents. It is the longest running theatre in the state of Illinois. Its current production is The Dixie Swim Club, about five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team. Each year they take a long weekend to recharge those relationships. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years and we see the changes that life brings them.

Shows continue May 14-17, 2015. Tickets for The Dixie Swim Club are $17 for adults and $10 for children under 18. The Alton Little Theater is located at 2450 N Henry Street in Alton, Illinois.
