|Directed by: Steve Umberger|
Get ready for slamming doors, mistaken identities, double entendres, rapid-fire office banter, and a marathon of physical comedy. It's all here, in this frenetic farce about the staff of a golf magazine named Putts. Putts has fallen prey to a corporate takeover, and the band of misfits who work there are now working overtime...to keep their jobs! This sizzler takes office hysteria to a whole new, laugh-filled limit.
|1 hour and 50 minutes, with intermission|
|Appropriate for ages 13 and up. Mild language and innuendo.|
Babes in arms are not permitted.

"For every winner, there are dozens of losers. Odd are you're one of them."
