Bernard (John Dafoe)

Take off on a farce with Terrace Little Theatre

Dinner theatre production pilots the audience on a farcical flight

Travel back to the 1960s when planes were slower and the air hostesses, which flight attendants were called back then, wore fancier outfits with hats and you’re part way there to Boeing Boeing, Terrace Little Theatre’s dinner theatre production playing right now at the golf course.

The Marc Camoletti French farce starts with Bernard juggling three fiancées, who are all air hostesses, and thanks to the speed of airplanes, and his maid, who never forgets to change the photographs in the bedroom, he’s always ready for a visit from one at a time.

However, when the faster Boeing plane is introduced and the fiancées’ schedules start overlapping, he’s faced all three at the same time. Matchmaking takes over when his old school friend Robert comes to visit and it’s a whirlwind from there.

Alan Weston takes his first turn as director and is enjoying his time in charge. “It was so much fun to see who showed up,” he said about the play reading, held last September.

After October auditions, all but one of the roles was filled with actors who’ve previously been on stage – Kristin Douma is the newcomer as Gloria, the American air hostess.

The rest of the cast is John Dafoe as Bernard, Garnett Doell as Robert, Amy Spencer as Italian air hostess Gabriella, Amy Turner as German air hostess Gretchen and Cheryl Spencer as Bertha the maid.
