The Foreigner tells the story of Charlie Baker (stage age 20's - 40's), a broken-hearted Englishman who wants to take a vacation and get his life together. His friend Froggy Le Sueur (stage age 30's - 40's) - also an Englishman - recommends the Georgia fishing lodge of his good friend Betty (stage age 40's-50's). English accents are required for Charlie and Froggy.
When Charlie decides he doesn't want to be bothered by the locals, he takes Froggy's advice and pretends that he can't speak English. Everyone around him reveals secrets thinking that he can't understand what they are saying. The hilarious consequences of his charade turn everything upside down.
Roles including Charley, Froggy, Bette, are all open. Other open roles include the local minister David Marshall Lee, his fiance Catherine Sims, and Ellard Sims, her brother. Also along for the fun is Owen Musser a local do-gooder who is actually the leader of group of rabble rousers. The stage ages for all of these roles is 20's to 40's, with the exception of Ellard who is late teens early 20's.
Auditions will consist of readings from the script. More information can be found under the Current Season drop down at the top of the page on the website!
