PERFORMANCES

THE FOREIGNER runs 3 weekends, Sept. 1-17th
with two weekday evening performances, Thursday, Sept. 7th and Tuesday, Sept. 12

SYNOPSIS & CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

An inventive comic romp, The Foreigner is set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia and tells the story of a pathologically shy young man named Charlie who pretends that he can’t speak English in order to avoid making conversation with strangers. Eventually the other guests decide to air their secrets around Charlie – many damaging revelations made - with the thought that Charlie doesn’t understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys,” and the “good guys” emerge triumphant.

Froggy Lesueur: A British military demolitions expert who occasionally conducts field operations in rural Georgia, Froggy is Charlie's caring friend and devises the scheme that protects Charlie from having to interact with the other guests at the lodge.

Charlie Baker: A science-fiction copy editor for a book publishing house, Charlie is in his late forties, British, and is a pathologically shy little man who has a very unfaithful wife, no personality that he can think of, and a need for peace and quiet. He has accompanied his friend, Froggy to a Georgia fishing lodge much against his own better judgment.

Betty Meeks: The proprietor of a Georgia fishing lodge, Betty is past seventy, a widow, and a long-time friend of Froggy. She is pleasant, wise in some ways, naïve in others. She is a good-hearted, generous, “down-home” Southerner who speaks the hardy local dialect.

Reverend David Marshall Lee: Neither the stereotypical pallid young divinity student nor the hearty backslapping evangelist, he appears to be a regular guy, one that you would like to have on your side. He is not what he seems, however, and he is clearly the brains behind the plot he engages in with Owen Musser to get control of Betty Meeks's fishing lodge and Catherine Simms's fortune.

Catherine Simms: The very pregnant and potentially rich fiancée of the Reverend Lee, she can be a formidable force and occasionally almost too much for the good reverend to handle. She has a ready wit and a sharp tongue. She badly needs someone to talk to, and, since Charlie doesn't bother giving advice, he suits her needs perfectly. Catherine is Ellard's sister.

Owen Musser: The Tilghman County property inspector, Owen is a two-tattoo man: one of them, he may have gotten while drunk or on a dare; two of them means he went back for more. Beware of a two-tattoo man. Owen and the Reverend Lee are cooking up a plot to condemn Betty's lodge so that it can be bought for their own nefarious purposes. Owen, we find, is the absolute stereotype of an ill-bred southern Klansman.

Ellard Simms: Catherine's brother, Ellard is an agreeable young man who is a bit slow-witted. He works as a sort of handyman for Betty and needs a considerable bit of instruction in his tasks, but may not be as dull as he seems. He is due to inherit a share of the Simms family fortune, unless the Reverend Lee can convince Catherine that Ellard is too stupid to manage money, or anything else, on his own. Ellard befriends Charlie and even decides to teach him to speak English.

All roles are open and new faces are encouraged to audition.

Any questions can be answered by emailing the director directly at

Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center's Encore Players will be holding auditions for Empowered: How One Girl Scout Nearly Destroyed the World's Economy by Don Zolidis directed by Joshua Schorejs next Monday, May 1st from 7 to 9PM.

Amaryllis is determined to win her Girl Scout troop's cookie-selling contest, but she'll need more than charm to win first prize (a unicorn!) and avoid last place (which means getting kicked out of the troop!). So when sales droop, she naturally turns to the financial sector for advice. Soon she's faking a terminal illness, franchising her methods, and contracting with a payday lender to offer 30-year loans for cookies. A hysterical homage to Glengarry Glen Ross and send-up of the wild excesses of the financial crisis.

We are looking to cast an ensemble of 7 women and 3 men; actors of any age or ethnicity.

We ask that actors prepare 2 contrasting comedic monologues no longer than 3mins in total length.

Empowered will have performances July 7th, 8th, & 9th.

If you are interested in auditioning, or would like more information, please contact the director, Joshua Schorejs, to set up an audition time at

Thank You!

"Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) will hold auditions in Houston on May 6th and 7th for the upcoming production of PIPPIN, slated to run at the Miller Outdoor Theatre this summer.

PIPPIN will be directed and choreographed by Michelle Gaudette who directed MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET for TUTS last summer at Miller Outdoor Theatre.

“We are so looking forward to our annual summer shows at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Our relationship with our friends and colleagues at Miller Outdoor Theatre provides us with the opportunity to remember our beginnings there nearly 50 years ago. Our lineup for this summer, which includes PIPPIN, will build upon our tradition of providing access to some of Houston’s best musical theatre. We are delighted to be working with our long-time collaborator Michelle Gaudette and our immensely talented local actors to create a summer line-up that inspires, entertains, and celebrates all that is great about Houston and the Houston arts scene,” said Hillary Hart, Executive Director of Theatre Under The Stars.

PIPPIN, a circus inspired production, features a troupe of acrobatic performers led by a very charismatic Leading Player. The performers’ main purpose is to tell the story of Pippin, a young prince who is longing to find adventure and passion in all areas of his life.
PIPPIN, with book by Roger O. Hirson and music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, will play at Miller Outdoor Theatre July 11-16, 2017.


The Houston auditions will take place at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in the Administration Building, located at 800 Bagby St.,
Houston, Texas 77002, and the schedule for the days will be as follows:
Saturday, May 6th
2-6 p.m.
