BOURBONNAIS, IL (03/28/2013)(readMedia)-- Nick Allen of Bourbonnais, a sophomore at Olivet Nazarene University, stars as S/Sgt. "Froggy" LeSueur in Olivet's student production of "The Foreigner." Show times are: Thursday, April 4, 7 p.m.; Friday, April 5, 7 p.m.; and Saturday, April 6, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Kresge Auditorium in Larsen Fine Arts Center on Olivet's campus.

Directed by Emily Dillard, an Olivet senior from Galesburg, Ill., "The Foreigner" is an American comedy by playwright Larry Shue. Set in a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia, this is the story of Charlie Baker, an Englishman, and his friend, Froggy, as they use humor to cope with some difficult situations. In the end, their humor creates even more difficulties. If you enjoy plotting and planning that threatens to backfire, this is a must-see!
