Abrams Theatre Presents “The Fox on the Fairway”

fox_lgAbrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will present, The Fox on the Fairway (Book by Ken Ludwig) August 8, 2014 – August 17, 2014 at The Byng Community Theater in Abrams.

A tribute to the great English farces of the 1930’s and 1940’s, 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.

Opening night is Friday, August 8 at 7:00pm. Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will be celebrating by having an Opening Night Gala. Patrons that attend opening night will receive complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks after the show (with the cast and crew).

Subsequent show dates are as follows:

August 9th at 1pm & 7pm
August 10th at 1pm
August 15th at 7pm
