'Foreigner' Coming To Arts Center

The Arts Center of Cannon County is happy to announce the hilarious comedy The Foreigner April 15 thru May 1.

Laughter and hilarity are in abundant supply as our favorite southern comedy returns to the Arts Center stage with Mike Reed as Charlie, a shy man who seeks peace and quiet in a rural backwoods lodge.

The Foreigner is set in rural Georgia where two English men, Froggy and Charlie arrive as guests. “Froggy” LeSeuer, a British demolition expert, has brought along his pathologically shy friend, Charlie.

When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, he cannot find words due to his terrible shyness.  Before departing, “Froggy” 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. Charlie’s little white lie fuels the nonstop hilarity of this play as situations conspire to turn Charlie's holiday from himself into a self-discovery of humor, good-nature, even heroism and sets up the wildly funny climax in which thing go uproariously awry for the “bad guys.”  

Directed by Mary Wilson, The Foreigner also features Arts Center favorites Tim Spry, Phil Mote, Emily Roberts, Pat Garrett, Justin Winton, and Becky Coutras.

The Foreigner is sponsored by First National Bank and is part of the 2011 Stagedoor Series.
