The Ouachita Little Theatre has announced the cast of their upcoming production of The Foreigner, directed by RMCC Drama Instructor, Robby Burt.
Taking the lead will be Lamar Austin as ‘Froggy’ Le Sueur; Scotty Jenkins as Charlie Baker; Judy Thompson will play Betty Meeks; Krys Swanberg will be Reverend David Marshall Lee; Katelin Haines is set to play Catherine Simms; and Scott O’Rear will play Owen Musser.
The scene for the comedy is a rural fishing lodge in Georgia where Froggy brings a friend, Charlie, home with him, who is too shy to speak. The pair come up with a story that Charlie is foreign and doesn’t speak English. However, as Charlie continues to overhear more than he should, the fun begins.
The evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate unfold, the fact that the minister’s pretty fiancée is pregnant, and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said.
The Foreigner will be performed for audiences in October. Visit the OLT website www.oltmena.com for a brief description on the characters and the play. The Ouachita Little Theatre is located on 610 Mena Street.
