RACINE — A classic farce, “Boeing Boeing,” will open the Racine Theatre Guild’s 80th season and will run Friday, Sept. 15, through Sunday, Oct. 1, at the Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave.
The comedy features Bernard as he juggles his three stewardess fiancées — Gabriella, Gretchen and Gloria. He expertly changes his routine to fit each woman’s decor choices, taste in food and airline timetable. He is able to keep each blissfully unaware of the other until all three women unexpectedly arrive in town on the same evening. Catastrophe looms and chaos erupts as Bernard attempts to regain control with the help of his maid, Berthe, and friend, Robert.
Directed by Amber Smith, the cast will feature Matt Specht as Bernard, Eric Welch as Robert, Julia Jaskulske as Gabriella, Katie Kowbel as Gretchen, Megan Seager as Gloria and Laura McDonald as Berthe. Written by Marc Camoletti and translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans, “Boeing Boeing” won the 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
Performances will take place at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays. Additional shows will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, and 7 p.m. Sept. 24 and 28.
Tickets cost $18 for adults, $16 for seniors and $13 for students. The 7 p.m. shows cost $14.
