AUDITIONS
Theatre at the Mount Proudly Presents Boeing Boeing

It’s the 1960s and swinging playboy Bernard juggles three fiancées — each one a beautiful flight attendant — who are all engaged to him without knowing about each other. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until the invention of a new and speedier Boeing jet and unexpected schedule changes bring all three fiancées to Bernard’s apartment at the same time. With his friend Roberforgetting which lies to tell to whom, Bernard’s elaborately scheduled love life turns into catastrophically funny chaos.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS

BERNARD (30’s +): An American architect living in Paris; handsome, well-educated, charming; engaged to three air hostesses whom he manages to keep in the dark about one another by managing their visits on a strict timetable; takes boyish pleasure in the success of his devious doings, until his careful planning starts to fall apart, deflating his confidence.

ROBERT (30’s +): Bernard’s schoolmate from back in the States; hasn’t seen Bernard in many years; shy, small-town, Midwestern, and sweet- a nerd by today’s standards; views Bernard’s whirlwind juggling act of three fiancés with awe and admiration–until he gets wrapped up in it himself and his anxiety spins out of control.

BERTHE (40’s +): French; Bernard’s long-time live-in maid and cook; although devoted to Bernard, she is tired of keeping up with Bernard’s revolving-door lifestyle, and by play’s end she has been pushed as far as she will go; dry and fantastically sarcastic; never afraid to say what’s on her mind; French accent.

GABRIELLA (20’s to 40’s): Bernard’s Italian fiancé; air hostess for Alitalia; sultry and full of fire, she is much smarter and more self-reliant than she first appears; Italian accent.

GRETCHEN (20’s to 40’s): Bernard’s German fiancé; air hostess for Lufthansa; has an intense Teutonic passion that can spin on a dime-one moment she might be soft and cuddly, and the next barking out orders and breaking furniture; inspires equal amounts of lust and fear in those around her; German accent

GLORIA (20’s to 40’s): Bernard’s American fiancé; air hostess for TWA; epitome of a go-getter American woman; has a vigorous appetite for food and love; completely adorable and supremely confident, but she might punch you if you dared call her “cute”; New York accent.
