Boeing Boeing lands at The Naples Players!
August 20, 2021
August 20th, 2021 – Naples, FL. Get ready to take a trip to the 1960’s when air travel was still a glamorous affair. Sponsored locally by The Inn on Fifth, Boeing Boeing runs from September 29th to October 24th 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 & Francis Evans.
Playboy Bernard (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?!
CEO/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 SWFL 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, September 29th from 6:30pm-7:30pm and features local vendors, food, drinks, and live music from the band Chariot.
