The Waterville Opera House will present a tribute to the great English farces of the 1940s when “A Fox On The Fairway” opens Friday, Jan. 5, in Waterville. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Jan. 25, 26, Feb 1 and 2, and at 2 p.m. Jan. 7 and Feb. 3.

In the play, attendees will meet two headstrong men, Henry Bingham from Quail Valley Country Club, and Dickie Bell from Crouching Squirrel Country Club. The two lifelong rivals are competing against each other in the Annual Inter-Club Golf Tournament where the winner takes all bragging rights — including Mrs. Bingham’s beloved Antique Shop! When the flirting gets out of control, the rivalry unexpectedly goes beyond the tournament and into matters of the heart.

The cast of community actors include: Tim Croce, Bee Tyler, Bart Shattuck, Jeralyn Shattuck, Erik Hyatt and Emilienne Ouellette.

The production team includes: Director Debra Susi, sound design by Eli Livingston, lighting and scenic design by Tony Gerow and costume design by Candace Chase.
