‘Fox on the Fairway’ opens this week

The comedy “Fox on the Fairway” opens the Highlands Cashiers Players at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Performing Arts Center on Chestnut Street in Highlands.

The play is written by the acknowledged master of farce, Ken Ludwig, whose many comedies have been produced on Broadway and from coast to coast in regional theaters.

The basic plot is: Quail Valley Country Club, desperate to end its five-year losing streak against Crouching Squirrel Club in the annual golf tournament, attempts to find a crackerjack player who will join their club and lead them victory. Thus begins the belly laugh marathon of non-stop action, clever dialogue and improbable romance, full of ups and downs and an unlikely surprise ending brings everything to a happy conclusion.

The cast includes Ronnie Spilton, Stuart Armor, Michelle Hott, Chris Hess, Lance Trudel, and Laura Zepeda. Tanji Armor directed.

“Fox on the Fairway” will run from Aug. 23-Sept. 2, with evening performances at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.

828.526.8084.
