The Carriage Lane Players will be presenting Marc Camoletti’s “Boeing-Boeing,” translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. This will be the second production offered by the new Colebrook-based theater group, which performed “Barefoot In The Park” to full houses at the Tillotson Center on Carriage Lane in Colebrook last season.
Once again sponsored by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts, the group offers three opportunities to see “Boeing-Boeing,” with performances scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 27 and Saturday, Feb. 28, as well as a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 1.
It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard (Tom Jordan) couldn’t be happier: he has a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses (played by Colleen Clogston, Nora Gair and Naomi Going) all engaged to him without knowing about each other.
But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert (John Quigley) comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously. Robert can hardly believe his eyes as he sees how Bernard and his maid Berthe (Catherine Carter) handle the fiancees flying in and out of the bachelor pad. The audience will want to fasten their seatbelts–there’s certainly turbulence ahead!
