“The Foreigner,” written by Larry Shue, is slated for a May 3-19 run with veteran thespian Ron Graham directing.
Graham is inviting actors to tryouts at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse, 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd., to fill five men’s roles and two women’s parts in the show.
“The Foreigner,” set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia, revolves around two guests, shy Englishman Charlie Baker and Staff Sgt. Froggy LeSuer, who claims his companion is from an exotic country and can’t understand English.
Privy to secrets
Before long, Charlie finds himself privy to assorted secrets and scandals freely discussed in front of him by the other visitors.
These include a spoiled Southern belle and the seemingly humble preacher to whom she is reluctantly engaged, her slow-minded younger brother and a racist country property inspector who plans to oust the owner and convert the lodge into a Ku Klux Klan meeting place.
Actors can find copies of “The Foreigner’s” script at the reference desks of the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., and at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
At the tryouts Saturday and Monday, they will be asked to read portions of the play. Those who also want to perform monologues should limit them to one minute in length.
Rehearsals for “The Foreigner” will start March 18 and run most Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights at the playhouse. More details are at www.PAcommunityplayers.com.
