Elgin Theatre Company proudly presents their September show, Ken Ludwig?s The Fox on the Fairway! Performances of this raucous comedy will run from September 6th to the 22nd at the Kimball Street Theater in Elgin, IL. This is ETC?s first production of the 2013-2014 season.

Bingham, the president of the Quail Valley Country Club, is in a difficult position. Justin, his new assistant, is in love with Louise, a waitress at the club. Bingham has also discovered the golfer he thought would play for his club in the annual tournament has been recruited by his counterpart and nemesis from the opposing club, Dickie. The huge bet he had foolishly wagered is now likely to be lost. Fortunately, he discovers that Justin is actually a good golfer and finagles a quick membership so Justin can play for his team. Justin gains a huge lead but then learns that Louise has lost the engagement ring he gave her and he comes unglued. Justin goes on to lose his lead, and breaks his arm. Bingham is desperate, and the appearance of his wife complicates the matter, as she catches him much too close to Pamela, the sex-starved Vice President of Quail Valley. Can Bingham find a replacement for Justin to win the game, win the wager, and get his life in order?
