“The Foreigner” Opens at Home Made Theater

Foreigner-Poster-top-final-267x300Home Made Theater closes their 32nd season with Larry Shue’s comedy The
Foreigner. The show runs weekends April 22 through May 7 at the Spa Little
Theater in the Saratoga Spa State Park.

Charlie Baker is a painfully shy Englishman who’s terrified of conversation
– with anyone! So when he’s dropped off at Betty Meeks’ rural Georgia
hunting lodge for a few days of peace and quiet, the local inhabitants are
told that Charlie can’t speak or understand a word of English. This puts
Charlie in the interesting position of overhearing more than he should! The
Foreigner humorously barrels along and explodes in a wildly funny climax.

The director of The Foreigner is Patrick White who is making his HMT
directing debut. Past local directing credits include The Pope & The Witch,
Suddenly, Last Summer and Grand Concourse at Albany Civic Theater, Clever
Little Lies and Living on Love at Curtain Call Theatre, The Glass Menagerie
at Our Own Productions, and Rapture, Blister, Burn at Schenectady Civic
Players.

The cast of The Foreigner includes Debra Bercier as Betty Meeks,
Nick Casey as Charlie Baker, Cameron Fredericksen as Rev. David Marshall
Lee, Nicole Mecca as Catherine Simms, Dennis Skiba as Froggy LeSueur, Josh
Tracy as Ellard Simms, and Rick Wissler as Owen Musser.

The artistic team for the production includes scenic designer Dale Conklin,
lighting designer Stephanie Van Sandt, costume designer Dianne O’Neill
Filer, sound designer Barry Streifert and properties designer Mary Fran
Hughes.
