Way Off Broadway Community Players will be holding open auditions on Monday, March 4, 2013 at 7pm for the farcical comedy Fox on the Fairway by Ken Ludwig, which is being directed by Debbie Bishop. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. There are roles for 3 women and 3 men. A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Leading Ladies, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club, including the heated rivalry between the heads of the Quail Valley Club, and the Crouching Squirrel Golf and Racquet Club, who are fighting over a golfer they both want to make them the winner in the annual golf tournament.
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. This is a wonderfully manic satire not just of the golf world, but of human nature…full of the idiosyncrasies that are hidden, just barely, inside us all.
“A belly laugh marathon! An amazingly ingenious satirical farce.”− Showbizradio.net
