Salem theater tees up golf comedy

SALEM

Salem Community Theatre, 490 E. State St., will present “The Fox On the Fairway,” opening Friday and running for two weekends.

The comedy, written by Ken Ludwig, is a tribute to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s. It takes audiences on a romp through a private country club and its stuffy denizens.

Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, the fast-paced comedy recalls a Marx Brothers classic as it touches on love, life and man’s eternal love affair with golf.

The show focuses on two rival golf clubs vying for bragging rights and the trophy for winning the annual inter-club golf tournament.

Bingham (played by Dave Wack), the conservative yet competitive president of Quail Valley Country Club, and the outrageous Dickie (played by Richard Haldi), president of Crouching Squirrel Golf Club, enter into an escalated side bet.

In the middle of the posturing and conniving is Bingham’s sex-starved vice-president (and, coincidentally, Dickie’s ex-wife) Pamela, played by Karen Hauck-Losito.

Dan Haueter fills the role of Justin, a newly hired hand at the club — and a good golfer — who is dating Louise (Jordan Pitts), a waitress in the clubhouse.

Bill Finley is directing Salem’s production.

Ludwig, the playwright, is best known for his Tony Award-winning comedy “Lend Me A Tenor.”

Performances of “The Fox on the Fairway” will be at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $14 ($10 for senior citizens; $8 for students). Reserved seating is available by calling 330-332-9688.
