Flat Rock Playhouse to present Tony Award-winning farce

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – Flat Rock Playhouse will present the Tony Award-winning classic farce, Boeing Boeing, from July 3 – 27 at Flat Rock Playhouse Downtown.

The comedic misadventure takes place in 1960s Paris, France, where handsome architect Bernard couldn’t be happier. After all, with three beautiful fiancées – Gloria the American, Gretchen the German, and Gabriella the Italian, all of whom are international air hostesses – what could go wrong?

Everything works swimmingly until Boeing introduces a new, faster jet and all fiancées end up in town simultaneously. Bernard, his nervous friend, Robert, and his long-suffering housekeeper, Berthe, must work feverishly to prevent catastrophe and to ensure that Bernard is not caught. It all boils down to the timetables and a maid who never forgets to change the pictures.

Written by Mark Camoletti, the production stars Flat Rock Playhouse veterans Scott Treadway, Paige Posey and Lisa K. Bryant along with Beth Kuhn, Catherine LeFrere, and the Founder and Artistic Director of the N.C. Stage Company in Asheville, Charlie Flynn-McIver. The show is directed by Flat Rock Playhouse guest director Amy Jones, who is back at the Playhouse for her 16th consecutive season.

Performances will be Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m, with matinees Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. All tickets are $40 and can be purchased by calling the Playhouse box office at 866-732-8008 or online at www.flatrockplayhouse.org.
