Fox on Fairway

Current Season


“The Fox on the Fairway” by Ken Ludwig

A tribute 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.

Performance dates: 3/22,  3/23, 3/24, 3/28, 3/29/3/30, 3/31, 4/4, 4/5, 4/6, 4/7 (Th/Fri/Sat @ 8pm;  Sun @ 2pm). There will be an Open Dress Rehearsal on Sunday, 3/17 @  2pm. (Please note any conflicts you may have on the Audition sheet.)

Henry Bingham - Joe Szumila
Pamela Peabody - Colleen Mackle
Justin Hicks - Jacob Couthron
Louise Heindbedder- Laura Buttenbusch

🎭  (3/22-4/7/19) Introducing Deb Lewis, the Director of “The Fox on the  Fairway.” With over 25 years on stage, this production marks Deb’s  directorial debut! Deb’s been interested in directing for years and is  so glad to have this opportunity. In fact, she’s very familiar with the  play; in 2012, Deb played Pamela at a different theater. As always, Deb  thanks her husband, John, for being so understanding  for all the hours she’s worked on and off stage. Deb is also a CPA;  Playmasters happens to be the third theater she has devoted time  assisting with her amazing accounting skills. Deb has three grown  children. Her family loves to travel. A family favorite is hiking in  National Parks. They have visited over a dozen. Glad to have you at the  Helm, Deb! 🎭
🎭 (3/22-4/7/19) Introducing Jacob Cauthron as Justin Hicks. This is Jacob’s first appearance at Playmasters and he is all about the Arts. He enjoys acting, reading, writing, drawing, sketching, painting, and martial arts. He works as a Personal Trainer at Atom Olson Fitness in Hulmeville. When he's not assisting his AOFit family in building better bodies, Jacob enjoys comedy radio, fantasy novels, and pursuing his education as a Playhouse West student in Philly. He would like to thank his mother, Amma, for not only for bringing him into the world but for always allowing him the freedom to find his way... especially to Playmasters! 🎭
🎭 (3/22-4/7/19) Introducing Colleen Mackle as Pamela Peabody. When she was in 7th grade, Colleen's parents took her to see “Les Miserables,” and so started her life-long love of the theater.  Colleen was involved in theater throughout high school and college, and eventually found her way to Playmasters in 2003. While she's strayed to other theaters from time to time, Colleen is always happy when we welcome her back to her theatrical home away from home. Some of her recent and favorite shows at Playmasters include: “Holmes for the Holidays,” “Drop Dead,” “Bell, Book and Candle,” “Crimes of the Heart,” and “Cahoots.” Some of Colleen’s favorite shows elsewhere include: “Drinking Habits,” “Flaming Idiots,” “Four Weddings and an Elvis,” and “Rumors.” Aside from theater, Colleen enjoys traveling the world with her husband, singing, dancing, writing the occasional poem, playing with swords, archery, reading, watching movies, lounging with her three cats, and attempting to learn the ukulele. Success at these endeavors varies, but it's all fun... until someone pokes an eye out! Welcome back, Colleen! 🎭
🎭 (3/22-4/7/19) Introducing Linda Gold as Muriel Bingham. Linda has performed in community theatre throughout the Bucks County area for 11 years. Some of her favorite roles include: Ouiser in “Steel Magnolias,” Charlie in “Always a Bridesmaid,” plus principal dancer in various musical comedies such as “George M,” “Mary Poppins,” and “Music Man.” Her main love is comedy, and Linda enjoys all of her many various comedic roles over the years. Linda’s hobbies include playing the drums, oil painting, sports, gardening, and spending time with her husband Steve, her two dogs, and one cat. Welcome, Linda! 🎭
🎭 (3/22-4/7/19) Introducing Joe Szumila as Henry Bingham. Joe has been involved in community theater for almost twenty years; he has made many friends and many fond memories that are still being shared. His best on-stage experience was his first (and personal favorite) as Teddy in the classic “Arsenic and Old Lace.” When not at a theater, Joe enjoys cheering on the Phillies and the Eagles, fishing, hiking, photography, and having an exceptionally good stout with friends at the end of the week. Sounds good! The first round’s on us, Joe! 🎭
🎭 Introducing Paul McCarthy as Richard “Dickie” Bell. This is Paul’s first role at Playmasters! He has done a number of productions at Village Players of Hatboro. His favorite role (so far) is Father Chenille in the comedy, “Drinking Habits.” Paul is a graduate of Cardinal Dougherty HS, Temple U, and the University of Oregon Graduate School. Paul has over 30 years in Sales and Management. He is also a long-time player AND coach for Blackthorn Rugby Club. And... he LOVES golf! Welcome, Paul!  🎭
🎭 Introducing Laura Buttenbusch as Louise Heindbedder. Laura is honored to be a part of this production after recently appearing in last season’s “Moon Over Buffalo” and “I Ought to Be in Pictures,” which she also directed. She hopes you are able to see this very funny show, which runs 3/22-4/7, and hopes it will make you smile! Thanks, Laura! We know it will! 🎭
