LOCAL ACTORS SHARE COMIC ADVENTURES OF 'FOREIGNER' AT FOOTLIGHTERS

(CINNAMINSON, NJ) – Burlington County Footlighters takes a comic turn with the second show of its 74th year, presenting Larry Shue's The Foreigner from November 4-19, 2011. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm; and Sundays at 2 pm at The Playhouse, 808 Pomona Road in Cinnaminson, NJ.

From the award-winning writer of The Nerd, this comic romp is set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia where a British demolition expert is vacationing with his friend, a pathologically shy man. To hopefully shield him from having to interact with people, he is introduced as a stranger from a foreign country who speaks no English. Hilarity ensues as scheming guests assume he doesn't understand them and talk freely in front of him, leading to a climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys" and the "good guys" emerge triumphant.

Valerie Mazzagatti of Maple Shade directs the production, which features Bob Beaucheane of Philadelphia as Owen Musser, Daniel Brothers of Maple Shade as Sgt. "Froggy" LaSeuer, Emily Huddell of Moorestown as Catherine Simms, Phyllis Josephson of Westampton as Betty Meeks, Alan Krier of Maple Shade as Charlie Baker, Dave Marquart of Collingswood as Ellard Simms and Tim Petrillo of Moorestown as Rev. David Marshall Lee.

Tickets are $15. For reservations or additional information, call 856-829-7144 or visit www.bcfootlighters.com.
