"Fox on the Fairway" careens out of control from the start.
We have young lovers bounding in and out of doors - what would a Ken Ludwig comedy be without lots of slamming doors and antic entrances? - while the other cast members sauntering on stage to deliver well-worn one-liners about golf, including Mark Twain's classic crack about "a good walk spoiled."
Then the action gets underway.
The Black Swamp Players' staging of "Fox on the Fairway" opens tonight at 8 p.m. at First United Methodist Church,  1506 E. Wooster St., Bowling Green. The show continues with performances Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. and continues April  4 and 5 at 8 p.m. and April 6 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 and $10 for students and seniors available at Grounds for Thought, 174 S. Main St., Bowling Green.
The plot is a loosely strung clothesline on which to hang all manner of gags, pratfalls and innuendo. Clarity and cohesion are rather beside the point. The goal is to get the audience laughing, if not guffawing, or giggling, or otherwise expressing amusement.

Frankenstein and puppets prove to be a perfect match.
Just like the mad scientist who animates dead material, puppetry brings inanimate material to life. The skeletal, sinewy monster, truer to the Mary Shelley’s original vision, is far creepier as a lumbering near life-size construction, its artificiality evoking a nightmare in a way person could not.  PHOTO BLOG
“Frankenstein” opens tonight at 8 p.m. in the Eva Marie Saint Theatre in the Wolfe Center for the Arts on the Bowling Green State University. The show continues Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. The show continues April 3, 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. and April 6 at 2 p.m.
The production, directed and designed by Brad Clark, revives a much maligned figure in the popular imagination. The stock figure of the large, green hulk with bolt through his neck figure has been stripped even further of dignity and pressed into service for all manner of foolishness from starring in a sitcom to selling cell phone service.

The audience at the upcoming Improvised Shakespeare Company show on campus won't know what play they'll be seeing.
That's up to them.
The night's fare will be created based on a title suggested by someone in the audience. It has to be a title of a play that doesn't exist.
Beyond that the audience will know that this will definitely not be a drama pulled from one of the Bard's folios  and it definitely will be a comedy show.
The five members of the troupe don't know much more either.
Blaine Swen, the founder of the company, said they won't know if it's a tragedy or comedy until the very end. "Sometimes everything will be going happily and then everybody dies. ... That's what's exciting we're discovering everything in real time with the audience."
The Improvised Shakespeare Company will perform as part of  Festival Series April 5 at 8 p.m. in Kobacker Hall in the Moore Musical Arts Center.
