The Janey Slaughter Briscoe Grand Opera House is presenting “Boeing-Boeing” next weekend, just as the Soaring Society of America’s 18 Meter Nationals get underway.
Show times are Friday, Aug. 4 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 5 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 6 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students.
The award-winning comedy was originally written in French by Marc Carnoletti and was later translated for English stages by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans. The play takes place in the 1960s when bachelor Bernard owns an apartment in Paris, France, and is engaged to three stewardesses (one German, one Italian and one American) without them knowing of each other.
When Bernard’s friend Robert comes to stay, a new Boeing jet throws off his careful planning, and all three stewardesses are in town at the same time, Bernard forgets which lies to tell which girl.
The cast features Sebastian Cabralez as Bernard; Westley Halbardier as Robert Lambert; Barbara Chase as Gloria; Amanda Van Cleve as Gretchen; and Victoria Dühring as Gabriella. It is directed and produced by opera house manager Rosie Whisenant, who said producing the play has been a lot of fun.
