SYNOPSIS: The story takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by ‘Froggy’ LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time ‘Froggy’ has brought along a friend, an extremely shy young man named Charlie who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. So, ‘Froggy’ tells everyone that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. Once alone the fun begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should … the evil plans of a sinister, two faced minister and his associate; the fact that the minister’s pretty fiancee’ is pregnant; and many other 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.
Rehearsals will begin in February and continue thru tech and dress, the third week in March.
The quality of the auditions will determine the best casting for the show. This will be assessed after all auditions are completed.
