Don’t Miss the Final Appearance of the Golf Cart in Fox on the Fairway!

What does it take to make theatre magic?  Put together a stellar cast, design team, and a golf cart and you’ve got it.  Don’t miss the opening show of Penobscot Theatre Company’s 40th Anniversary Season, “Fox on the Fairway.”  You only have five more shots to see it!  See how we make it happen:

We asked Production Manager and Technical Director Aaron Noble what it took to get one of the stars of the show (a real live golf cart) into the building……..

“First, we removed the batteries, roof, and seat.”

“First, we removed the batteries, roof, and seat.”

“Then we rigged 4×8 platform to two linsets and legged it to the same height as the loading bay.”

“Then we drove the cart onto the platform, tied it down and used the rigging to raise the entire thing.”

“We then removed the legs and then we lowered the platform to the floor.”

Bernard Hope, Christie Robinson, and Amy Jane Mooney maneuver the golf cart on stage.

Don’t miss the last weekend of Fox on the Fairway! Audience member Nathan Roach says, “It was great to see hilarious newcomer Brent Hutchins among the talented veterans in this fantastic farce on the Fairway. They are each foxy in their own right, looking capital in Kevin Koski’s costumes, and inhabiting the amazingly detailed set with their links hijinks! I highly recommend joining the club and seeing the perfect play to tee off the 40th season!”
