In the Wings: The Fox on the Fairway. Meet Amy Long.

Amy Long plays Pamela in The Fox on the Fairway, the fourth show of the 2012-2013 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Ken Ludwig.

Question: Who is Pamela? What is she like?
Amy Long: Pamela would like everyone to think that she has her act together, but she has some baggage that she tries to keep tucked away but it bubbles up once in a while. She needs to address that in the course of the play.

Q: What is fun about playing a character like Pamela?
A.L.: She is pulled together on the outside, not so much on the inside. And that's fun. She's a little cougar, too, something I've always wanted to be.

Q: What will an audience enjoy about The Fox on the Fairway?
A.L.: It is pure fun. It is high-energy, high-stakes action on stage. The audience will wonder how it all comes out in the end.

Q: Of all the actors in the cast, including you, who would have the best golf score?
A.L.: It's not going to be me because while I have golfed, I do not golf. It's going to be Tim Devery because Tim can do anything.

The Fox on the Fairway opens Friday, March 8 and runs through Saturday, March 23 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre on the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. The Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m., the Sunday shows begin at 2:30 p.m.

Rush Tickets may be available before each performance for $8.00 for students with a valid college or high school I.D. Follow @lafayettecivic on Twitter before each performance to learn about availability for that night's performance.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
