The uptight members and staff of a private country club have life—and golf—all figured out. But when a friendly wager turns cutthroat, and sides are switched, it’s time to roll up their sleeves and come out swinging. A throwback to the great English farces of the 1930s and 40s, A Fox On the Fairway has mistaken identities, slamming doors, romantic shenanigans…and golf!

The cast includes Lucas Wells, Phil Powers, Wayne David Parker, Cheryl Turski, Stephanie Nichols, and Olivia Ursu. A Fox On the Fairway is directed by Travis W. Walter. Terry W. Carpenter is the stage manager with scenic design by Brian Kessler, costume design by Leslie Littell, lighting design by Reid G. Johnson and sound design by Mike Duncan.

“We’ve done a couple of different shows by Ken Ludwig through the years,” says Travis Walter. “Many subscribers will remember Lend Me a Tenor and, more recently, Baskerville. His plays are always a great story with a lot of great laughs.”

“This will be a great way to lighten up the winter blues,” continues Walter. “Whether you love or hate golf, we’ve teed up a hilarious show just for our audiences.”
