The stage is set for the return of Beach House Theatre plays at an outdoor location at Crescent Beach this summer.

For the company’s fifth season, a temporary stage will again be set up at Blackie Spit Park for productions of “The Foreigner” and “Aesop’s Fables.”

Morning performances of the family-friendly “Aesop’s Fables” will run from Aug. 10 to 14, while evening showings of “The Foreigner” will take place from Aug. 9 to 14.

The company’s evening shows have always sold out quickly.

Online ticket sales begin on Tuesday, June 21 via Beachhousetheatre.org.

Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner,” set in a fishing lodge in Georgia, follows the adventures of Charlie Baker (played by James Walker), a proof reader by day and a boring husband by night. This shy Englishman adopts the persona of a “foreigner” who doesn’t understand English in order to enjoy a quiet retreat away from his troubles.

In addition to Walker, other actors in the play include Michelle Collier, Jeff Hacker, Greg Derksen, Rebekah MacEwan, Elliot Figueira and Jacob Hildebrand.

Meanwhile, “Aesop’s Fables” features a mysterious troupe of traveling storytellers: Wolfie, Harriet, Syd and Barry. “Each one is eager to share their favourite fable with our audience, and their dramatic re-tellings of these traditional tales are full of hilarious antics, zany adventures, and so many animals we could fill a zoo,” according to show promo.

The actors in “Aesop’s Fables” are Claire Pollock, Bethany Stanley, Matt Falletta and Steven Masson.
