Town Players of Newtown will be holding auditions for its upcoming production of The Fox on the Fairway on Sunday and Monday, July 8-9.

Written by Ken Ludwig and being directed by Gene Golaszewski, the zany comedy takes audiences on a hilarious romp that 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 show is a madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with golf.

Auditions will be conducted from 7 to 9 pm each evening at The Little Theatre, 18 Orchard Hill Road.

Sides from the script will be made available at the auditions. All roles - three females and three males - are available.

Character breakdown is as follows:

*Justin Hicks is the recently hired, eager-to-please assistant to Henry Bingham. He is in his mid-20s, sweet, anxious, and off-beat. He is romantically involved with Louise.

*Louise Heindbedder is a waitress at Quail Valley Country Club. She is 23 and a knock-out! Leggy, good-natured, a little ditzy, but studious. She can cry at a moment's notice.

*Henry Bingham is in his 40s-50s. The executive director of Quail Valley Country Club, he is determined to do whatever it takes to win.

*Richard "Dickie" Bell, also in his 40s-50s, is the often obnoxious executive director of Crouching Squirrel Country Club.

*Pamela Peabody is 39, beautiful, very sophisticated, and a little loose. Vice President at Quail Valley, she is Dickie's ex-wife.

*Muriel Bingham, in her 40s-50s, is Henry's wife. A sturdy woman, she is a bit overbearing. She owns an antique shop that becomes part of a wager.

Crew and other volunteers are also needed for the event.

Performances are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays, September 21-October 7; Sundays, September 30 and October 7; and Thursday, October 11.
