Former As the World Turns actress Marnie Schulenburg (Alison Stewart) is currently starring in two plays at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, along with her husband, Zack Robidas. "The Foreigner" is running July 8 to August 2, while "Henry V" runs July 16-August 2.

In "The Foreigner," directed by Jim Helsinger, a pathologically shy Englishman named Charlie takes a much-needed holiday to a rural fishing lodge in Georgia with his good friend, Froggy. When Froggy informs the other inhabitants of the lodge that Charlie speaks no English in order to avoid unwanted conversation, the cast of outrageous characters freely reveals to him one secret after another, unleashing intrigue, outrage, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Directed by Matt Pfeiffer, Shakespeare's "Henry V" is the story of a young king rallying his soldiers "unto the breach" on his way to becoming the most celebrated leader in England's history. But at what cost to his land, his subjects, and his conscience does he pursue the glories of his nation and his reign? How does his politically arranged marriage to a French princess become a true romance? Vividly exploring the enigmatic morality of leadership, Shakespeare's masterwork celebrates the power of language to shape destiny and summons to life a majestic age.
