Opening this Friday, October 17 at the Ouachita Little Theatre is the rip roaring comedy The Foreigner, written by Larry Shue and directed by Robby Burt. It will be presented for two weekends.
The plot revolves around Charlie Baker, The Foreigner. He is an Englishman visiting America with his friend staying at a Fishing Lodge in Georgia. Guests believing that Charlie is from an exotic country and cannot understand a word of English so they speak freely around him. Charlie is soon privy to secrets and scandals of the other guests.
To see how all this plays out mark your calendar now and plan to attend OLT’s production of The Foreigner. Opening night, October 16 at 7:30 pm. Other performance dates are October 17th thru 18th and October 23rd, 24th, and 25th. All performances, with the exception of Sundays, are at 7:30 pm. Sunday Matinee is 2:30 pm.
This is a joint effort between the RMCC Theater Department and the Ouachita Little Theatre. Both organizations hope that this is the start of something big.
