Get ready to "grab your hats and grab your coats and leave your worries on the doorstep because the Town Players of New Canaan opens on February 22nd with Ken Ludwig's fast, furious and fun comedy The Fox on the Fairway, produced by Sheri Dean and directed by Tim Cronin.  Performance dates are Friday and Saturday, February 22, 23 & March 1, 2, 8 & 9 at 8PM with Sunday matinees on February 24 and March 3 at 2:30 PM at the Powerhouse Theatre, 671 South Avenue, New Canaan, CT.  Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors (age 62).  For tickets, please call the Town Players' box office at (203) 966-7371.  Anyone attending the opening night performance is invited to attend a party after the show in the Powerhouse Lobby.

Ken Ludwign has had six shows on Broadway and six in the West End, and he has won two Laurence Olivier Awards, three Tony Award nominations, two Helen Hayes Awards and the Edgar Award.  It strikes Mr. Ludwig that golf "is innately funny and has good comic roots: people all excited about getting a little ball in a hole, the stakes seem amazingly high, and you get all upset about something that is not very important.  This is about a bet by the head of one country club who bets against the head of another country club on the yearly tournament they have with each other."  Things go awry and havoc breaks out when the night before the tournament opens the best golfer switches club allegiance from Quail Valley to Crouching Squirrel.

The jolly cast of skilled comedy actors are Kevin McDonough as Henry Bingham, director of Quail Valley, Tom Petrone as Dickie Bell, director of Crouching Squirrel, Deborah Burke as the beautiful lush Pamela, Marcia Vinci as Muriel, owner of Ye Olde Crock antique shop and Bingham's wife, as well as Sarah Smegal and Morgan Flagg as the young lover golfers Louise and Justin.  They will lead audiences on a madcap adventure about love, life and man's eternal love affair with golf.
