Abrams Spotlight performing ‘Boeing Boeing’

The exploits of French bachelor Bernard and his three lovely flight attendants will keep audiences laughing as Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. presents “Boeing Boeing.”

The comedy, directed by Wayne Strei, will be presented June 6-9 and June 13-16 at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams. Tickets are on sale now.

“If you like comedy and nonstop action, you will love this show,” Strei said. “There are lots of doors and people coming and going at a furious pace as a carefully constructed bachelor’s life juggling three different airline hostesses falls apart.”

“Boeing Boeing” is similar to Shakespeare’s comedies of merry misadventures and mistaken identities. The comedy is a French farce written and set in the early 1960s. The show centers on Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German and American fiancées, each a beautiful airline hostess with frequent layovers. He keeps one up, one down and one pending without them knowing about each other by abiding by a strict schedule.

Bernard’s life gets bumpy, though, when his friend, Robert, comes to stay, and complications such as weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon, all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously and catastrophe looms.

Strei said the actors have extensive experience on stage, and they’re creating characters that are fun and exciting to watch.

“With such a small cast, each character has their moment to shine, but it’s the fast-paced action and the interplay between the different characters that makes this show so much fun,” Strei said. “You will not be able to keep up by the end because you won’t be able to stop laughing.”

Tickets are on sale now at $17 for adults, $15 for senior citizens and youth ages 5 and older, and $8 for youth ages 4 and under.

“We encourage you to join us for this crazy show. We’re having a great time working together on it and hope you enjoy it as much as we are putting it together,” Strei said.

“Boeing Boeing,” rated PG, is written by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans, and presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com.
