Florida Repertory Theatre announces the opening of Ken Ludwig’s farce, A Fox on the Fairway, playing in the Historic Arcade Theatre Nov. 1 – 20.
The run includes four nearly sold-out previews Oct. 29 – 31.
A Fox on the Fairway is a zany and hilarious farce that turns a stuffy country club on its head. Mistaken identity, slamming doors, and romantic escapades keep audiences in stitches in this madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with golf! From the renowned comic author of previous Florida Rep hits, “Lend Me a Tenor” (2012) and “Moon Over Buffalo” (2006), this is a signature Ken Ludwig Farce where Marx Brother’s hilarity meets country club politics.
“A farce is the best way to kick off our season in the Historic Arcade Theatre, and this is one of the best of Ken Ludwig’s farces,” said Florida Rep artistic director Greg Longenhagen. “Our 22nd season is off to a running start with a salute to a country icon running in the ArtStage and now a madcap farce about to open in the Arcade. We’ve assembled an all-star cast of returning ensemble members and some comic powerhouses making their Florida Rep debuts, and I promise this production will keep you in stitches.”
A Fox on the Fairway features a cast led by Florida Rep ensemble members David Breitbarth, Kate Hampton, Patricia Idlette and William McNulty alongside New York actors Matthew Goodrich (Florida Rep newcomer) and Betsy Helmer, who returns after appearing in last season’s Steel Magnolias.
David Breitbarth returns to the Arcade stage after star turns in previous farces Rumors, Social Security and Florida Rep’s last outing with Ken Ludwig, Lend Me a Tenor. Kate Hampton was seen most recently in The Miracle Worker and How the Other Half Loves, and made her Florida Rep debut in Lend Me a Tenor. Patricia Idlette is a fixture at Florida Rep and stages across Southwest Florida, and appeared in last season’s Steel Magnolias. William McNulty returns after appearances in The Miracle Worker, Twelve Angry Men and as Mark Rothko in Red, among others.
Florida Rep’s Chris Clavelli directs the production after recently helming Florida Rep’s Becoming Dr. Ruth, Outside Mullingar and Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor in 2012.
Tickets start at $55/$49 for regular performances and $35/$29 for previews. Tickets are available online at www.FloridaRep.org and through the box office at 239-332-4488. Performances are Tuesday – Thursday at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
Florida Rep performs in the Historic Arcade Theatre and the ArtStage Studio Theatre on Bay St. between Jackson & Hendry with limited free parking in the River District.
