Published January 7

NEW PORT RICHEY — The Richey Suncoast Theatre kicks off the new year with the comedy, The Fox at the Fairway. The play, which opened in 2010 at the Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia, was written by Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig (Moon Over Buffalo, Leading Ladies, Lend Me a Tenor).

Fox is centered around the antics of some over-the-top characters at a stuffy, private country club. It promises plenty of laughs for those with an appreciation of Marxx Brothers classics or the English farces of the 1930s and 1940s. Audiences can expect a fast-paced show filled with plot twists, mistaken identities, romance and of course, golf.

Performers in this local production are Diane Ramos, Juan Tirana, Brianna Fawley, Michael Worssell, Heidi Hook and George Hook. Director is Rich Aront.

The Fox on the Fairway runs matinees and evenings, Jan. 17-20 and Jan. 25-27 at the Richey Suncoast Theatre, 6237 Grand Boulevard, New Port Richey. Tickets are $18 (cash) and $20.07 credit card. Call the box office at (727) 842-6777 or purchase tickets at the box office. Hours are 1 to 6 p.m. Friday and one hour before the show.
