The Fox on the Fairway Auditions

The Fox on the Fairway Auditions at Area Community Theatre in Tomah, WI

Open auditions for our upcoming play, “The Fox on the Fairway,” directed by Brent Wagner.

SYNOPSIS:
(Comedy) A tribute from Ken Ludwig 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. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man’s eternal love affair with… golf.

SHOUTOUTS FROM OUR FRIENDS

  • I love ACT because I love the Arts, which are Music, Theatre, & Art. ACT & the Cultural Arts Center offer all of theses. I also love ACT because of the people who are committed to giving their time & talents for this theatre. It's offered an opportunity for me to know people I wouldn't have known otherwise.

  • ...Everyone is so appreciative and complimentary and recognizes the hard work you put into a production. You do not feel taken for granted at all. All the hours of hard work are recognized by the patrons who attend the shows. It's sooo gratifying! ...Being on that stage is addicting! ACT and it's patrons/ members are like family to ME!! I love being involved and I love volunteering so many hours to ACT because ACT gives back to me what I need. Bridget Owens Owens Chiropractic, Tomah, WI

  • I love ACT because it gave me the chance to get back on the stage after a 20 year absence. It even let me share that stage with my son while performing in one of my favorite musicals! Thank you ACT!!

    ~Sam Komay

  • To me ACT is a group of individuals who volunteer to provide entertainment for our local community.  ACT provides an opportunity for people of all ages to make new friends and become a part of productions that family, friends and others get to enjoy. ACT provides an avenue for creativity and will not turn anyone away. Even if you want to be involved but do not want to be on stage there are many other ways to help out. ~Cherie M. Lipp Carmichael & Quartemont, S.C.

  • I always loved theatre.  In the theatre I can be or portray  almost anyone!  Imagination is a great thing.  I also love to make people laugh and cry and then laugh again!  It’s also a wonderful place to make new friends and meet old acquaintances.

    ~Steve Jones  

  • Great family entertainment right here in Tomah. My daughter and I haven't been disappointed. She loves it as much as I do and that is a lot for 12 years old!

    ~Mary Moodey

  • I love live theater.  Area Community Theatre allows me to see and participate in great shows without having to travel an hour or more. I have attended and helped with ACT shows for more than twenty years.  ACT increases the area’s quality of life.

    ~Barb Sullivan

  • I have been involved with the Area Community Theatre for over twenty-five years. I have enjoyed meeting many new people through ACT and have made many lifetime friends as a result of my involvement. Whether I am acting, directing, selling refreshments, or popping popcorn for our patrons, there is never a dull moment when I am at the theatre. I simply can't imagine my life without being involved with ACT. It has been a very positive experience for me.
