Alverno High School Presents The Foreigner

Alverno High School is proud to present Larry Shue’s The Foreigner on November 8, 9, and 10 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Rita’s Church O’Malley Hall.

The Foreigner is the story of a boring, depressed man named Charlie (Alessia Paciulli) and his friend Froggy (Karmah Eldesouky), staying at a lodge in rural Georgia. Wanting to cheer up his friend, Froggy tells the lodge owner that Charlie is a foreigner who doesn’t speak English. Suddenly, Charlie is privy to a world of private conversations and secrets offering him the excitement his life has been missing.

The cast of The Foreigner includes senior Alessia Paciulli as Charlie; junior Karmah Eldesouky as Froggy; senior Lindsay Fisher as Betty Meeks; PJ Lakatos as Reverend David Marshall Lee; senior Lauren Moore-Sanchez as Catherine Simms; sophomore Erika Winstanley as Owena Musser; junior Cassie Shima and freshman Amy Aghajanian as Ellie Simms; and freshmen Dina DerVartanian, Jackie Hischier, and Alexxa Vasquez as townspeople.

Presale tickets to The Foreigner may be purchased from the Alverno office for $8 and for $10 at the door at O’Malley Hall.
