Written by Ken Ludwig (Crazy For You, Lend Me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) as a tribute to the great English comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a sidesplitting romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, high-stakes wagering, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that mixes golf, romance and fashion. Kyle Januszewski  directs this play starring Brett Femrite as “Bingham”, Polly Harrison as “Pamela”, Daniel Frank as “Dickie Bell”, Magdiel Carmona as “Justin”, Nicole Neely as “Louise”, and Mary Ann Morrow as “Muriel”. Assistant Director Nicole Holbert’s costumes add fabulous visual humor.

Note: this play contains some adult situations and humor and may not be appropriate for children.
