Center Stage lands Boeing Boeing in Shelton

SHELTON — Boeing Boeing is “taking off” at Center Stage Theatre in Shelton through Oct. 24.

Directed by Rob Esposito and written by Marc Camoletti, the comedy that is similar in vein to Shakespeare’s comedies of merry misadventures and mistaken identities tells the exploits of French bachelor Bernard and his lovely female flight attendants. Three flight attendants, to be exact, from three different countries - and they all believe they’re engaged to Bernard.

In the past, Bernard has been able to juggle these women due to his detailed timetable of his fiancés’ flight schedules. When the situation changes and all of the women end up at his apartment on the same day, Bernard (with help from his bewildered friend Robert) struggles to keep them from learning the truth. Will the lying lothario be able to keep up this charade, or will a disaster occur? As they say: all’s well that ends well.

Performances run Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. and a special Thursday performance at 7 p.m. on Oct. 21 with adult tickets available for $30, and students tickets for $15.
