Auditions for A Fox on the Fairway will take place at the NEW LOCATION– Waterville Opera House Rehearsal Space in the Hathaway Creative Center, 10 Water Street in Waterville.
About: A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with… golf. This hilarious romp, which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club, is filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over the top romantic shenanigans.
Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Audition Materials can be found here.
Henry Bingham – Director of the Quail Valley Country Club. He is witty and cynical at times, much like Basil Fawlty from Fawlty Towers. He gets into a high-stakes bet on a golf tournament and is determined to do what it takes to win. Unhappy in his marriage to Muriel and becomes involved with Pamela.
Pamela Peabody – A member of the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive and sophisticated, but a bit loose and a bit of a drinker. She tends to aid Bingham in his plans to make sure their club wins.
Justin Hicks – Bingham’s new eager-to-please assistant who volunteers his services as a golfer to help Quail Valley win the golf tournament. He is romantically involved with Louise and proposes to her early on, but becomes emotionally distraught when things become difficult.
Louise Heindbedder – A waitress at the Quail Valley Country Club. She is very attractive, and a bit flighty, but studious. She gets engaged to Justin early on, but a mishap results in her becoming very upset over their future together, making her bawl at a moment’s notice.
Dickie Bell – The director of the rival Crouching Squirrel Country Club, with whom Bingham gets into a high-stakes bet. He is a bit obnoxious, including his fashion sense, but tries to come off as good-natured. He is Pamela’s ex and has a thing for Bingham’s wife, Muriel.
Muriel Bingham – Bingham’s wife, who runs an antique shop, which becomes part of the bet between Henry and Dickie. Generally overbearing and stern, she somehow has a soft spot for Dickie.
