Hackmatack Playhouse Presents BOEING-BOEING, 8/22-9/1

The play takes place in successful architect Benard's Paris flat. Benard (played by Joseph Dalfonso) juggles his three flight attendant fiancées, Gloria (Crystal Lisbon), Gabriella (Samantha St. Onge), and Gretchen (Abby Langstead AND Amanda Dane). Old school chum Robert (Adam MacDougall) is bewildered by the whole idea but can't help from being involved. He does lots of kissing in this French play. Meanwhile, Benard's long-suffering, ready to quit house-keeper Bertha (Tinka Darling) reluctantly keeps the mayhem under control. But the 60's jet-setters pace escalates when jets get faster and the flight attendants' schedules start to overlap. The six doors in Benard's apartment swing and who knows who is coming or going, who is bathing, sleeping, or sneaking.

"Boeing - Boeing" is a classic farce written by French playwright Marc Camoletti. The movie version was a hit for Jerry Lewis in the 1960's. The stage version was a 2008 Tony Award winner. The Hackmatack Playhouse version is in its final days and is being lauded as a fun show to end Hackmatack's 41st season.

"Boeing - Boeing runs at 8:00PM, Wednesdays through Saturdays, August 22 through August 25, and August 29 through September 1. There are 2:00PM matinees remaining on Thursdays, August 23, and August 30.

The Guptill Family, actors, staff, and volunteers thank faithful contributors, sponsors, and play-goers ("Hackmatackers") for another year of theatre and fond memories.

Shows being considered for the 2013 season include "9 to 5," "Xanadu," "Legally Blond," "Jersey Boys," "How to Succeed in Business…," "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," "Titanic," "Monty Python's Spamalot," and possibly some shows that have previously been presented at Hackmatack.

Hackmatack Playhouse continues their tradition of affordable ticket prices with student ($10), senior ($22 evening shows, $18 matinees), and group discounts. Regular adult prices are $25 evenings, and $20 matinees. Tickets are available online at www.Hackmatack.org or by phone, 207-698-1807.
