Meramec Theatre Holds Auditions for “The Foreigner”

November 19, 2014

St. Louis Community College-Meramec will hold auditions for Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, and Wednesday, Dec. 3, in the Meramec Theatre on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road in Kirkwood.

 

Auditions consist of cold reading from the script. Performance dates are Feb.11-15.

 

The scene is 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. During this visit, Froggy brings along a friend, a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. As Froggy departs, he tells the other lodgers that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Then, the fun 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 fiancé is pregnant; and many other damaging revelations revealed with the thought that Charlie does not understand a word. But he does, and this fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play.

 

“The Foreigner” is directed by Michelle Rebollo and designed by Rick Willmore. Scripts are on reserve in the Meramec Library.
