A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, A 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

Since 2013, Great River Arts (GRA) has coordinated 12 theatre performances - welcoming new and seasoned actors and directors to our stage. Community theatre provides GRA with a visible platform to not only showcase local talent, but to connect in the community as friends, neighbors and family. GRA presents theater through its youth summer camps in addition to its Dinner Theater programming, allowing kids to learn auditioning skills, stage presence, and choreography. We pride ourselves in being a hub for community theater and bringing together local talent, directors, and volunteers together through the performing arts.
