"The Foreigner" Comedy Play Needs Cast
Auditions for play "The Foreigner". In need of cast. Please see the breakdown below. About the project: "The Foreigner is a fun, two-act comedy by American playwright Larry Shue. The story takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Tilghman County, Georgia where two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. The shy Charlie agreed to accompany Froggy on the trip after his sick wife begged him to go. When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, however, he remains silent: he is terribly shy, depressed about his wife's illness, and cannot find the words to reply. Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is a "foreigner" from an exotic country, and does not understand English. Taking the explanation that he's a non-English speaker as fact, the lodge's guests quickly begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the residents of the lodge." Additional info: No prep required. The audition will consist of cold reads from the script.
An outgoing Englishman who’s in the Army and has traveled the world, including many stays at the Betty Meeks Fishing Lodge Resort— which (surprise, surprise) is not the most exotic place he’s been to, but certainly has its charm.
A friend of Froggy’s who has everything going for him except the fact that he’s very shy, admittedly boring and stuck in a bad marriage where his wife has cheated on him. Many times. Many, many times.
An charismatic but aging woman with a big personality who owns the Betty Meeks Fishing Lodge Resort. Obviously.
A reverend who is engaged to Catherine.
A southern belle who has traded her debutante title for a “soonto-be preacher’s wife” title. She’d be happy about it, but her cynical opinions, cranky attitude and self-loathing tends to get in the way.
Catherine's slow but sweet younger brother who just needs a little bit of confidence to realize what he’s capable of.
Property inspector/jerk who’s trying to steal Betty’s lodge right out from under her. Literally. Owen and his buddies are some pretty shady characters.
