audition notice - THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY - Mesa Encore Theatre - November 1 & 2

by Ken Ludwig
Directed By David Chorley

THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. 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. Just in time for the world renowned Phoenix Open.

HENRY BINGHAM (Lead): Male, 35 – 60
Director of the Quail Valley Country Club; witty and cynical at times, much like Basil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers.

PAMELA PEABODY (Lead) Female, 35-60
A member of the Quail Valley Country Club; very attractive and sophisticated, a bit loose and a bit of a drinker.

JUSTIN HICKS (Lead): Male, 20-30
Bingham’s new eager-to-please assistant who volunteers his services as a golfer to help Quail Valley win the golf tournament.

LOUISE HEINDBEDDER (Lead): Female, 20-30
A waitress at the Quail Valley Country Club; very attractive, a bit flighty, but studious.

DICKIE BELL (Lead): Male, 30-60
The director of the rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club, with whom Bingham gets into a high-stakes bet. Nothing pleases him more than ruffling Henry’s feathers.

MURIEL BINGHAM (Lead): Female, 30-60
Bingham’s wife, who runs an antique shop, which becomes part of the bet between Henry and Dickie. Lover of antiques and not a lover of golf.
