keepin’ the light on
A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, Ken Ludwig’s The Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp, pulling 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.
“Ideal for theatre lovers, golf lovers and anyone who loves to laugh, this is one show you won’t want to miss. The play will be performed at the Shadow Lakes Event Center, which is the perfect setting for a golf-themed comedy. What’s more, our audience will enjoy a dessert buffet and coffee service during the intermission, included with their ticket. It will be a truly fun and memorable event,” said Dixon.
The comedic cast features Ben Botello (Bingham), Kyle Conley (Justin), Ron Craven (Dickie), Teresa Grosserode (Pamela), Abby Phalen (Louise), and Wendy Rodriguez (Muriel).
“What I love about the show is of course, the obvious farcical humor, the clever lines, double meanings, and all the physical action that is typical of a Ken Ludwig play. He has a great talent for somehow resolving all the issues in a positive and surprising manner by the final curtain, always delighting the audience,” said Craven.
“We want everyone to join in the fun as we delve into the zaniness of these hilarious characters. Maybe YOU wouldn’t chase each other, scream or take a swing (on the golf course or otherwise) like these characters do, but wouldn’t it be fun to watch? If you love comedy, theater or golf, you will love this show,” said Grosserode.
Performances will be held for one weekend only at the Shadow Lakes Event Center, located at 401 Lakeview Drive in Brentwood, with evening shows on Friday October 12th and Saturday October 13th at 7:30pm, and a matinee on Sunday October 14th at 2pm.
