Ocoee The­atre lands ‘Boe­ing Boe­ing’

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - ARTS - STAFF RE­PORT

Ocoee The­atre an­nounces its next pro­duc­tion will be the up­roar­i­ous com­edy “Boe­ing Boe­ing.”

“This will be one of our most chal­leng­ing pro­duc­tions. It’s filled with phys­i­cal, fast-paced com­edy and im­pec­ca­ble tim­ing,” says Candy Tap­per, pres­i­dent of the the­atre group.

Five week­end per­for­mances are sched­uled start­ing Satur­day, Feb. 10, through Sun­day, Feb. 18, at The Venue Creek­side in Cleve­land, Tenn.

“Boe­ing Boe­ing” is a clas­sic farce writ­ten by French play­wright Marc Camo­letti and trans­lated by Bev­er­ley Cross and Fran­cis Evans.

The story re­volves around Bernard, an Amer­i­can play­boy, who is en­gaged to three beau­ti­ful flight at­ten­dants: one Ger­man, one Ital­ian and one Amer­i­can. With the help of three flight sched­ules, Bernard is able to keep the ladies separated and con­cealed from each other.

This setup works fine as long as Bernard’s live-in maid, Berthe, keeps things straight in the apart­ment. De­pend­ing on the day of the week, she makes sure the apart­ment re­flects the be­long­ings and likes of the flight at­ten­dant sched­uled to be there.

Al­though the plan works for a while, things be­gin to un­ravel af­ter the women’s flight or­ders change. It be­comes in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult to keep them apart and even­tu­ally all three at­ten­dants ar­rive home on the same day.

Adding to the sit­u­a­tion, Bernard’s long­time friend, Robert, un­ex­pect­edly ar­rives in town. Robert, who is less skilled with the ladies, tries to help Bernard by keep­ing the ladies apart. And the fun be­gins … the awk­ward friend finds him­self en­tan­gled in the chaos as he strug­gles to keep the ladies from learn­ing the truth.

Ocoee The­atre’s cast in­cludes Jonathan Tyn­dall, Dawn Wil­son and Trevor Miles with Heather John­son, Ash­ley Had­dock and Paige Smith as the stew­ardesses. Tick­ets are $12 and $15. For more in­for­ma­tion: 423-284-8209.
