Photo Flash: Phamaly Theatre's THE FOREIGNER Moves to Arvada Center Tonight
Intensely shy Englishman, Charlie Baker, visits a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia with his eccentric army buddy, Froggy LeSueur. Froggy concocts an outrageous scheme to save Charlie from his pathologically shy self by introducing him to the lodge's inhabitants as an exotic "foreigner" who can't speak or understand English. It isn't long before Charlie's guileless persona backfires and like a fly on the wall, he overhears more than he should about the scandalous and damaging revelations of those around him. The nonstop hilarity of the play builds to an uproariously funny climax where events go awry for the "bad guys" and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.
The cast includes Don Gabenski (Billy), Michael Leopard ("Froggy" LeSeur), Jaime Lewis (Owen Musser), Jeremy Palmer (Charlie Baker), Lyndsay Palmer (Catherine Simms), Trenton Schindele (David Marshall Lee), Daniel Traylor (Ellard Simms) and Kathi Wood (Betty Meeks).
