Tom won a ranch in a poker game, and subsequently struck oil on it. Now he’s a millionaire and is pursued by Pamela a coquettish golddigger and daughter of Tom’s CPA Randall. When Pamela goes back to New York for the summer, Tom hopes to improve himself enough to impress her. So in the tradition of “My Fair Lady” Tom hires a librarian-ish tutor named Florence to teach him to be more cultured, to say “get” instead of “git,” and to stop slurping his soup. Florence will also try to manner up Tom’s unruly ranch hands, Hank and Lem to great comic effect while Tom’s foreman Link is a key player in Tom’s plan. Jose, the ranch’s Mexican cook is quite hilarious in his own right. A romantic comedy of sorts, “The Man with the Pointed Toes” is a sweet, appealing show that despite prompting bursts of laughter, feels honest and real.

The Foreigner is a fun, two-act comedy with a story that takes place in a fishing lodge in rural Tilghman County, Georgia where two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive as guests. The shy Charlie agreed to accompany Froggy on the trip after his sick wife begged him to go. When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, however, he remains silent: he is terribly shy, depressed about his wife’s illness, and cannot find the words to reply. Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is a “foreigner” from an exotic country, and does not understand English. Taking the explanation that he’s a non-English speaker as fact, the lodge’s guests quickly, and often hilariously begin revealing their secrets, and Charlie soon discovers scandals amongst some of the residents of the lodge. Directed by David Stanley and SGMT Rated PG.
