Franklin Footlight Theatre presents the comedy The Foreigner written by Larry Shue.
Show dates are May 9-11 at 7:30 pm, performed at the historic Franklin Opera House. The show takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by Froggy LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby Army base. This time Froggy has brought along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So Froggy, before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should - the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate; the fact that the minister's pretty fiancee is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. The Foreigner will keep you laughing from start to finish. Don't miss this show! Presented with permission from Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Thank you to all who came out to audition for the show. You all made the casting decisions very difficult. To all who are cast, just a reminder we will have the read-through on Sunday at 6:30 pm at the Opera House. We will meet downstairs in the conference room (where we had the auditions). Thanks again everyone!
