Thank you all for your help in getting the word out about auditions, however, after two nights, we still do not have a full cast for The Foreigner. Many of the main roles are still open. ( Cast: 4 men 1 teen. 2 women)

So if we want this timely comedy to happen for us and as a tribute for Jack Clark, please ask as many actors, actresses, and technicians to look at their schedules (Performances are Oct 13, 14, 15, 2016) and come tomorrow night – Thursday Aug. 25 – at 6:30 PM at the CS United Methodist Church for a final night of auditions.

Thanks again for your help with OUR show! 🎭

Hi Theatre Aficionado,

I’m extending a personal invitation to you to come to auditions for the Cedar Springs Community Players next production: The Foreigner.  Auditions for The Foreigner will be Monday and Tuesday,  August 22-23 at the Cedar Springs United Methodist Church from 6:30 PM – 8:00 pm.  Production Dates are October 13, 14, 15, 2016 at the Kent Theatre.  

There are roles for 2 women and 4 men, 1 younger man, and possibly several non speaking parts. 

All are great character roles including:

Froggie:  40′-50’s+ – in the British Army, Demolitions expert

Charlie:  40’s-50’s+. – shy, doesn’t like crowds, smarter than appearances!

Betty:   50”s-70’s – owns the lodge, speaks local dialect, wise yet naive in some ways

Rev. David:  30’s-40’s + – appears nice enough – humorous – open

Catherine:  30’s-40’s+ – engaged to David – quite outspoken

Ellard:  teens-30’s – Catherine’s brother – a lumpy, overgrown, backward youth

Owen – a “two tattoo man!” – middle-aged sinister backwoods man – sneaky

SYNOPSIS:  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.  The play demonstrates what can happen when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who (they think) knows no English. 

Hope to see you there.

Sue Harrison, Director
