AUDITIONS APA Dinner Theatre Comedy - Boeing Boeing
Tuesday, August 4 - 5:30 p.m. in the Black Box


*  Please prepare a one minute comic, farce monologue. Callbacks are August 5. First read through: August 6.

Rehearsals begin on August 17: 5-6 days a week afternoons until school starts when most will be evenings.

  • All actors must be available for all rehearsals!
  • Three of the four women require accents so start practicing now (see all characters below).
  • We also hope to use understudies as well as assistants.

Performances are September 10-13. Written by Marc Camoletti. Translated by Beverly Cross and Francis Evans.

Winner of the 2008 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, BOEING BOEING is a hilarious, door-slamming farce. Bernard, an American architect living in 1960s Paris, successfully juggles three flight attendant fiancées: one American, one German, and one Italian. He tracks their schedules while his long-suffering housekeeper reluctantly plays romantic air controller as they fly in and out of his swank bachelor pad. But when his old college pal, Robert, visits unexpectedly, things turn a tad turbulent. Unfortunately for Bernard, a faster Boeing jet has been introduced. Schedules change, flights are delayed, and chaos ensues in this hysterical, high-flying fiancée fiasco.

Character Breakdown: 2 males, 4 females

Bernard (Early 30's) 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. Handsome, energetic, flirtatious and charming (American). “The whole secret is order. I am organized- beautifully organized.”

Robert (Early 30's) 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. Naive to the romantic side of life. From mid-west where life is much slower. Somewhat nerdy or inept (American). “Oh you know me….I never get involved in love stories….”

Gloria (Mid 20's) 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. Take-charge, health obsessed. Cheerleader type. “New Yorker by birth, and air hostess by profession.”

Gabriella (Mid 20's) The Italian fiancée, has the fiery passion of an Italian woman with a casual sensuality. A stewardess. Sentimental, lusty, very smart and suspicious. “The more people tell me to do something the less I want to do it. That’s how I am. It’s my nature.”

Gretchen (Mid 20's) The German fiancée, blessed with an aggressive nature. At any moment, she could make love to you or fight you. A stewardess. Dominating, militant, passionate. Lower register would scare any man into marrying her. “I’m madly romantic, you see. I’m worse than that. I’m passion itself.”

Berthe (40's to 50's) Bernard’s long-suffering French housekeeper. She is very dry, very direct and perfectly unwilling to help in any way – stereotypically French. Taciturn, no-nonsense, gruff, bully housekeeper who loves nothing more than to complain. “It’s lucky I’m an optimist. That’s what keeps me going.”

If you are called back for Berthe, Gretchen, or Gabriella you will need to do their accent so it would be very wise to practice that over the summer.

Three is the ideal number. Less than three would be monotonous. More than three would be too much. Three is the dream.

The Actors Nightmare 5/11 & 5/13   

Having casually wandered onstage, George is informed that one of the actors, Eddie, has been in an auto accident and he must replace him immediately. Apparently no one is sure of what play is being performed but George (costumed as Hamlet) seems to find himself in the middle of a scene from Private Lives, surrounded by such luminaries as Sarah Siddons, Dame Ellen Terry and Henry Irving. As he fumbles through one missed cue after another the other actors shift to Hamlet, then a play by Samuel Beckett, and then a climactic scene from what might well be A Man for All Seasons—by which time the disconcerted George has lost all sense of contact with his fellow performers. Yet, in the closing moments of the play, he rises to the occasion and finally says the right lines, whereupon make-believe suddenly gives way to reality as the executioner's axe (meant for Sir Thomas Moore) instead sends poor George to oblivion—denying him a well-earned curtain call.

With Kayla Boogar, Sidney Farrar (5/11), Makenzie Hajek (5/13), Zach Lombardo, Jacob Menke, Katie Peterson and Nicholas Stenseng

 

The Hardy Boys and the Mystery of Where Babies Come From 5/12 & 13   

In this parody Frank and Joe Hardy change sweaters a lot and look cute. The word "sleuthing" excites them and they're off to investigate what it means that Nancy Drew has "a bun in the oven."  Unfortunately their journey leads them to the nefarious Nurse Ratched who has other plans for the boys. 

With Rachel Fishbough, Sam Johnson, Mason Marie and Grant Rincon

 

Medea 5/12 & 13   

Co-authored by Durang and Wendy Wasserstein. Medea and her chorus of 3 woman try to figure out if it's appropriate to kill your children to punish your husband. Jason shows up; so does a messenger with news of Lady Teazle; and a Deus ex Machina comes down from the sky to cheer everybody up.

With Caitlyn Abrahams, Melissa Cooper, Erik Drake, Maxwell Holley, Cassie Kirkconnell, Makena Low and Shannon Mahoney

 

Desire, Desire, Desire 5/11 & 12 

Another Tennessee Williams parody, from the author of For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls which was a CETA award winner when APA’s Actor’s Rep produced it. Blanche DuBois, her nerves shot, is stuck in a house with slob Stanley Kowalski, who keeps yelling "Stella!." Stella left for a lemon Coke six years ago and never returned. Blanche tries to seduce a young census taker, but is interrupted by Big Daddy and Maggie from Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. A "tart" from The Iceman Cometh shows up as well, irritating Blanche by saying "pipe dream" instead of "illusion." Stella comes back briefly, but departs again; leaving Blanche and Stanley stuck together for eternity. 

With Emma Baltadano (5/11), Benjamin Belhassen, Haley Blizzard, Sorshia Curry, Alyssa Hall (5/12), Fionna Mahaffey, Amaras Miller, Finn Mitchel and Jake Webber
