Announcing Auditions: The Fox on the Fairway

Director Rod Dimmick has announced audition information for The Fox on the Fairway, the fourth show in the 2012-2013 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Ken Ludwig.

Auditions will be Monday, Jan. 14 and Tuesday Jan. 15 from 7-9 p.m. each night at Oakland High School, 611 S. 21st Street, Lafayette.

Rod is looking to cast 3 men, ages 20-40, and 3 women, ages 20-40.

Those auditioning will be asked to arrive at 7 p.m. and stay for the entire audition. They need come to only one night of auditions. They will be asked to read from the script.

Scripts are available for checkout at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street, Lafayette.

A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor, Moon over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, 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.

The Fox on the Fairway will open Friday, March 8 and run through Saturday, March 23 in the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7:30 p.m.; the Sunday shows begin at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for youth age 18 and under. Tickets can be purchased by calling 765-423-PLAY (7529) or visiting http://www.lafayettecivic.tix.com
