UNCW Theatre Presents "Boeing Boeing"

Thursday, February 16

Additional Information

The University of North Carolina Wilmington Department of Theatre continues its 2016-17 season with “Boeing Boeing,” Feb. 16-19 and 23-26.

Written by French Playwright Marc Camoletti and translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans, the play is a quick-witted farce directed by Ed Wagenseller, associate professor of theatre. It follows Bernard, a bachelor who tries to balance three separate engagements to three different airline stewardesses with two things in common… air travel and him.

“Boeing Boeing” was first staged in London in 1962 and ran for a total of seven years. It is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most-performed French play in the world. The 2008 Broadway revival production starring Mark Rylance and Bradley Whitford received rave reviews.

“Boeing Boeing” runs at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

All shows will take place at the Mainstage Theatre in the UNCW Cultural Arts Building. Tickets are $15 for the general public; $12 for seniors, UNCW employees and alumni; and $6 for students (sales tax included). They are available online or at the Kenan Box Office by calling 910.962.3500. Tickets can also be purchased in person one hour prior to each show.
