Auditions for this farcical comedy will held at the Playhouse on Main on Sunday, February 21st and Monday, February 22nd at 6:30 p.m.. There are roles available for three men and three women.
Per publisher Samuel French: "The Fox on the Fairway" takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf.
Bingham, president of the Quail Valley Country Club, is in a difficult position. Not by finding out that his newly hired hand, Justin, is in love with Louise, the waitress at the club house, but by the discovery that the golfer he thought would play for his club has switched sides, recruited by Dickie - Bingham's nemesis at a neighboring club. Now the huge bet Bingham has foolishly wagered on a club-vs.-club match is likely to be lost. Fortunately, Justin is a good golfer. Unfortunately, he comes unglued when Louise accidentally flushes her engagement ring down a toilet. Complicating things further are Bingham's wife Muriel, his sex-starved club VP Pamela, a rain storm, and a broken arm - can Bingham win the wager, keep his club, and stay sane in the process?
Auditions will be cold readings. Perusal scripts will be available for sign-out in the Playhouse lobby beginning Tuesday, February 9th - the lobby will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. until the audition dates, and most evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m..
