Riotous laughter and great food are on the menu when "Fox on the Fairway," Ken Ludwig’s hysterically funny comedy with a golf theme, is presented in West Shore Community College’s Administrative and Conference Building North Lounge as a dinner theater offering, on Thurs., March 5 through Sat., March 7, and Sun., March 8.
Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. and curtain at 7:30 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, and dinner served at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, with a 2 p.m. curtain time. Tickets for the two- entrée dinner, dessert, drinks, and play are $35 per person.
Renowned comic playwright, Ken Ludwig (“Lend Me a Tenor,” “Moon Over Buffalo”) pays tribute to the great English farces of the 30s and 40s. “The Fox on the Fairway” is a, “Hilarious romp that offers the most outrageous insight into the competitive game of golf,” says production director Mike Mikula.
In the comedy, the Quail Valley Country Club prepares to take on archrival Crouching Squirrel in the Annual Inter-Club Golf Tournament. With a sizable wager at stake, the contest plays out amidst three love affairs, a disappearing diamond, obnoxious sweaters and an exploding vase.
Mikula brings a talented cast to tee off the laughter. David Grove portrays Dickie Bell, an unpleasant man prone to wearing the ugliest sweaters you've ever seen. WSCC Performing Arts scholarship student Kyler McQuesten is Justin, a sweet, offbeat bundle of nerves.
Sara Brown plays Pamela, an extremely elegant woman and she has seen it all. The character of Henry Bingham is a bit jaded by marriage and life in general and is played by Paul Garland. Maggie Moul is the good natured, slightly ditzy Louise and Breanne Tetzloff, also a WSCC Performing Arts scholarship student, portrays Muriel Bingham who charges through life like a Sherman tank.
The production team includes Emily Hartrum as stage manager, with set design and construction by Mike Mikula, assisted by WSCC Performing Arts scholarships student Topher Webb on construction. Susan Barnard is costume designer, Amanda Collene is lighting designer, Adam Knudsen is sound designer, with Tim Juhl as sound assistant, and Marty Cupp is scene painter and sculptor. LeAnna Engwall, Sean Pollock, and Sara “Birdie” Wurtz round out the crew.
Don’t miss this charmingly madcap adventure, a farce raised to an art revolving around love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with golf, adds Performing Arts Series co-director, Ted Malt. Performance dates are Thursday, March 5, Friday, March 6, Saturday, March 7, and Sunday, March 8, one week only.
