“The Foreigner” at the Ocala Civic Theatre

March 16, 2018 News


Location  4337 E Silver Springs Blvd
In this Southern-fried comedy, two Englishmen, Froggy and Charlie, arrive for what should be a peaceful weekend at a fishing lodge in rural Georgia. Poor Charlie, depressed and painfully shy, is terrified of talking to strangers – so the well-meaning Froggy tells everyone that Charlie is a foreigner from an exotic country and doesn’t know a word of English. But when Charlie overhears some scandalous news, as well as the sinister plans of a couple of rednecks who aren’t the model citizens they seem to be, does he confess or keep up the charade? Hilarious in any language, laughter needs no translation in this wildly funny farce!
Tickets Prices 25 Adults, 12 Full Time Students

Below will be a few helpful tips to make your garage sale advertisement stand out and be the most informative one on the page.



Here are 5 tips and tricks of the Garage Sale classified:

1) Have a catchy title to your ad like “Christmas Blowout Sale!” or “Prices Not Found in Stores!” ; You want to catch people’s attention right away so they will look further into your ad, so get creative!

2) In the first line or two of your description try to include the dates, times and location of your garage sale so it will show up in the preview, also so shoppers can plan accordingly.

3) Try to add photos of some of the big ticket items that will be available for purchase at your garage sale.

4) Also include where to park if you have a specific area, or if you live in a regulated neighborhood let people know anything they may need to know.

5) Being descriptive is a must!  Not only with your items for sale but also WHEN and WHERE the sale is.

We hope this list will help you when creating your advertisement. Thank you for using Ocala4sale!
