Get ready to take a trip to the 1960s when air travel was still a glamorous affair.
Boeing Boeing runs Sept. 29 to Oct. 24 in Blackburn Hall at The Naples Players. This crowd-pleasing comedic farce, directed by Jessica Walck, was written by the French playwright Marc Camoletti and translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans.
Playboy Bernard (played by Bernardo Santana) lives in Paris with his fiancé, TWA airline stewardess Gloria (Emilie Baartman) – and his fiancé Lufthansa stewardess Gretchen (Sarah DeLeonibus) – and his fiancé Alitalia stewardess Gabriella (Erica Jones). Per Bernard’s design, none of the women know about the other two.
Bernard’s trusty live-in maid, Berthe (Pamela Austin), is able to keep up the ruse by remembering each woman’s food preferences, clothing,and even changes out their photographs. All is going well until Bernard’s friend, Robert (Luke Lauchle) comes for a visit. Due to a faster Boeing jet, all three women arrive at Bernard’s apartment on the same day. Will he be able to keep up his scheme or even survive the day?
Naples Players CEO and artistic director Bryce Alexander says, “We couldn’t be more excited to give our community an important chance to come together, have a good laugh, and enjoy the amazing artists that Southwest Florida has to offer. The arts are open – and these community events are more important now than ever. It’s a hilarious show!”
A red carpet event open to the public is slated for Wednesday, Sept. 29 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and features local vendors, food, drinks and live music from the band Chariot.
Performances are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Both general public and season tickets are on sale at the TNP Box Office at 701 5th Ave. S. Those interested can visit anytime or call 239-263-7990.
