Racy Com­edy com­ing to Haskell

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Derby Line, VT - Stanstead QC

QNEK Pro­duc­tions is turn­ing 21 and bring­ing the party to the NEK with the rollicking, ram­bunc­tious, racy com­edy Boe­ing Boe­ing. Throw­ing back to the swing­ing 60’s, we’re barely le­gal and look­ing to start our birth­day with a stiff drink and a hearty laugh.

Set in late 1960’s Paris, Boe­ing Boe­ing takes view­ers on a wild ride travers­ing a day in the life of the ul­ti­mate bach­e­lor. Bernard has it all: a beau­ti­ful Parisian apart­ment, a great ca­reer, and the per­fect girl…make that girls. Bernard has been metic­u­lously sched­ul­ing his three air host­ess fi­ancées by their flight sched­ules. Two days with Air France, two days with Lufthansa, and two days with TWA. On the day we find Bernard, his old col­lege buddy turns up for a visit nearly send­ing

his long suf­fer­ing maid Bertha over the edge, but the fun is just be­gin­ning. As each fi­ancée gets up­graded to the Su­per Boe­ing, they be­gin to ar­rive on top of each other. Can Bernard, Robert, and Berthe keep it to­gether and get through the day with­out ex­pos­ing his se­cret? Buckle up and set­tle in be­cause it looks like we’re in for a bumpy ride!

Our in­ter­na­tional cast fea­tures QNEK fa­vorites Mike Des­jardins (New­port Cen­ter), Ruth-Ann Fletcher (Derby), Sue Kuzma (Derby), Michele Streeter (Bar­ton), re­turn­ing fa­vorite Kim Pran­g­ley (Stanstead, QC), and new­comer Chris Plan­etta (Stanstead, QC). Sup­port­ing the cast is di­rec­tor Jenny Dunne (New­port), As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor Phil Gosselin (New­port), Stage Man­ager Lisa Fos­ter (New­port), and Set De­signer Robert Wing (New­port).
