CAST BREAKDOWN

All roles are paid.

 

BERNARD (30s-40s) – An American architect and swinging bachelor. He is a combination of Don Draper and Jack Tripper. A ladies man who thinks he has the fairer sex completely figured out. 

BERTHA (40s-60s) – Bernard's long-suffering French housekeeper. She is very dry, very direct and perfectly unwilling to help in any way - stereotypically French.

ROBERT (30s-40s) – Bernard's old college friend from Wisconsin. A fish out of water, unsure of how to act around Bernard’s beautiful women and tangled secrets.

GABRIELLA (23-35) – The Italian fiancée, has the fiery passion of an Italian woman with a casual sensuality. A stewardess. 

GLORIA (23-35) – The American fiancée, very quirky, from the way she stands to what she eats. She is a passionate woman with an upbeat disposition. A stewardess. 

GRETCHEN (23-35) – The German fiancée, blessed with an aggressive nature. At any moment, she could make love to you or fight you. A stewardess.

 

Actresses auditioning for Bertha, Gabriella and Gretchen will be provided a side from the script when making an audition appointment. This does not need to be memorized, however, the sides are being provided in advance for purposes of preparing the appropriate accent(s).  Bold choices are welcomed. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.


ABOUT BOEING BOEING

Boeing Boeing is produced by Garden Theatre and is directed by Keith Smith.

 

It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. In a slightly naughty farce with lots of slamming doors and has enjoyed hit revivals in London and New York, lift your tray tables and fasten your seat belts – Boeing Boeing is up and away on the Garden Theatre stage!

 

Performances of Boeing Boeing are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm, March 20 – April 4, 2015. There will be an Industry Night performance on Monday, March 30 at 8pm.
