Valley Playhouse presents ‘The Foreigner’ at Court Square Theater

Crystal Graham

the foreigner cst valley playhouse Valley Playhouse is returning to Court Square Theater with the comedy classic, The Foreigner, running March 23-April 2.

Directed by Stephen Winegard, Larry Shue’s play is set in a fishing lodge in rural Georgia. British demolitions expert “Froggy” passes off his pathologically shy friend Charlie as a non-English-speaking visitor from an exotic foreign country.

Two villains, a sinister minister and his backwoods sidekick, freely discuss their dastardly plans and other damaging revelations in front of Charlie – thinking he doesn’t understand a word they’re saying.

Charlie shares the inside story with Froggy and things go uproariously awry for the “bad guys,” leading to a wildly funny victory by our heroes.

The Foreigner features Buddy Garrison as Charlie Baker and Scott Lunsford as Froggy LeSuer; joined by Terry Southerington, Jenny Howard, Laura Pyle, Sam Kauffman and Michael Lafferty.

Gail Arthur and Claire Wayman are co-producers.

Performances are Thursday-Saturday, March 23-25 and March 30-April 1 at 7:30 p.m.; with matinee showings on Sunday, March 26 and April 2 at 3 p.m.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to each performance.

Advance adult tickets are $15 ($17 at door); advance senior/student tickets are $13 ($15 at door).

March 30 is “Pay What You Will” night, with at-door cash sales only.

Tickets are available at courtsquaretheater.org or by calling the box office at (540) 433-9189.

Court Square Theater is located at 41-F Court Square in downtown Harrisonburg,
