“Drink up. We’re in for a bumpy night.” Sage advice from put-upon maid Berthe (Jill Vize, Stowe) as Lamoille County Players brings a 1962 French bedroom farce to the stage in their sixty-seventh season with a production of Boeing, Boeing.
Boeing, Boeing is set in the 1960s, and centers on French bachelor Bernard (Brendan Peveril, Hyde Park), who has an apartment in Paris and is engaged to three stewardesses: New York-based Gloria (Andrea Gagner, Saint Albans), Italy-based Gabriella (Leanne Day Harple, West Glover), and Germany-based Gretchen (Christine Grzebien, Barton/Orleans). All three are engaged to him without knowing about each other. When his friend Robert (Chris Demars, Morrisville) visits from Vermont, Bernard's lifestyle begins to unravel. Complications from weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously, and catastrophe looms.
Director Gene Heinrich of Saint Albans (who directed Deathtrap and The Miracle Worker for LCP) chose Boeing, Boeing for its over-the-top, naughty French slapstick humor. “I wanted to bring something to the stage that defies our over-zealous political correctness. This is a classic play that touches on stereotypes and slightly adult themes in a hilarious manner. You will leave the theater with a smile on your face before realizing how offended you should be by the inappropriate situations and humor. A good time will be had by all!”
Performance dates for Boeing, Boeing are November 8-10 and 15-17 (Friday – Saturday, 7:00pm; Sundays, 2:00pm) at the historic Hyde Park Opera House in Hyde Park, Vermont. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for students, or seniors ages 60 and over. On Sunday, November 10 all seats are just $10 for the 2:00 pm matinee.
