Fox on The Fairway

On August 3, Highlands Playhouse presents the hilarious farce, “The Fox on the Fairway” by Ken Ludwig. 

Starring Holly Ruth Gale, Mark Bacon, Kelly Strand, and Samantha McHenry, this deliciously absurd comedy will have you on the edge of your seat and rolling in the aisles.  

Attention Golfers and country-club members, this one is tailored for you.  Set in the prestigious Quail Valley Country Club, the plot centers on a high stakes tournament and a dangerous wager.  This will be our third presentation of the season and is sure to be a good one.  The action unfolds as underdog QVCC faces off against arch-rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club in this year’s Annual Inter-Club Tournament.  With the tourney as our backdrop, the action unfolds amidst three love affairs, a disappearing diamond, objectionable sweaters, and an exploding vase. Romance and water hazards collide in this madcap tale of lust on the links.  The production runs from August 3 through August 19, with shows at 8:00 P.M. Wednesday through Saturday and 2:00 P.M. matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
