SCF Theatre Department Presents "The Foreigner"

(Bradenton, Fla., Nov. 20, 2018)—State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota’s (SCF) Theatre program presents Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner” at 8 p.m. Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 7, 8 and at 2 p.m. Dec. 2 and 9 at the David S. & Anne V. Howard Studio Theatre, SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. W. 

Dean Anthony directs this hilarious farce about a shy and depressed Englishman who is forced to visit a fishing lodge in Georgia. Charlie Baker, played by Jacob Owens, is a science fiction proofreader by day and boring husband by night. While staying at a hunting lodge, he adopts the persona of a foreigner who doesn't understand English in hopes of being left alone. The plan backfires as the lodge’s occupants speak freely around him. He becomes privy to secrets both dangerous and frivolous, but the creative extrovert he discovers within might just save the day. “The Foreigner” has earned two Obie Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards as Best New American Play and Best Off-Broadway Production. 

The cast includes SCF theatre students Jack Heckler, as Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur; Micheal Longobardi, as Betty Meeks; Luke Sandlin, as the Rev. David Lee; Jacob Jones, as Owen Musser; Kelsey Fisher, as Catherine Simms and SCF Collegiate School student Kathryn Daniel, as Ellie Simms. Eason Laviolette is the stage manager.
