PP: Tell us a little bit about the character you play.

Jered: My character is Justin Hicks: a lovable, innocent, and bumbling goof. He loves golf, Louise, and his mother. Justin also has knack for subtle art of origami and he secretly wants to play golf how they did in ancient times.

PP:  What have you enjoyed about working on The Fox on the Fairway? 

Jered:  I have really enjoyed sharing the stage with some really great actors and actresses during the run of The Fox on the Fairway. I have seen everyone on stage before but this is the first time I get to act with most of them. I think my favorite part of rehearsal was just finally getting to know these other great actors and also pitching basic cable movies ideas with Jeff and Graham.

PP:  You’ve acted at Parkway Playhouse before in previous seasons… but mostly in serious shows. What’s it like being in a comedy like this show?

Jered:  I have been in a lot of Parkway Playhouse plays over the years. And it’s true I do have more dramas under my belt then anything else. When I’ve done comedies in the past, I’ve really enjoyed it.  This is my first farce which is a different type of acting, but I loved the challenge and the ability to really be big and expressive.
Only two more chances to see this show!
