'Boeing Boeing' Opening 2012-13 Stages at CCC Season


“Not wives, fiancées! Fiancées are much friendlier than wives. And you don’t need all that many. I do very well with three!”
– Bernard, “Boeing Boeing”

Sparks will fly, doors will slam and romantic hijinks will ensue when the 1960s French farce “Boeing-Boeing” opens the 2012-13 Stages at Camden County College season on Oct. 19.

In the play, which has been translated into English, Frenchman Bernard has Italian, German and American fiancées – each a beautiful airline stewardess with frequent “layovers” with him in Paris. The self-styled lothario keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three women to the City of Light and their fiancé’s apartment at the same time.

Directing the production is Professor Marjorie Sokoloff of Pitman. Stage manager is Michael Walker of Trenton, and scenic design/technical design is by Don Swenson of Pitman. Lighting design is by John Curall of Philadelphia, and costume design is by Krissy Sneshkoff of Princeton.

Starring as “Bernard” is Pete Zielinski of Mount Laurel. Completing the cast are Jim Collins of Sicklerville as “Robert”; Ashley Reimer of Clayton as “Gloria”; Melissa Rittmann of Sicklerville as “Gabriella”; Melissa Connell of Collingswood as “Gretchen”; and Jenna Kuerzi of Mullica Hill as “Berthe.”

Performances of “Boeing-Boeing” will be given at 8 p.m. Oct. 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 and Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. in The Little Theatre. The venue is located inside Lincoln Hall on CCC’s Blackwood Campus at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children, senior citizens and CCC students, faculty and staff with valid identification. A special rate of $8 is available for individual members of groups totaling 20 or more.
