Set in the 1960s, “Boeing Boeing” centers around a swinging bachelor named Bernard who couldn’t be happier, a flat in Paris, and three gorgeous stewardesses, one German, one Italian, and one American. Wait for it…they are all engaged to Bernard and none is the wiser. Juicy plot twist.

“But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms,” as described by the Uvalde Grand Opera House.

Auditions will take place in The Uvalde Grand Opera House Annex located at 104 W North Street Uvalde, TX 78801 on May 31, 2017 from 6 – 8 p.m. For more information and to get an application form, please contact [email protected] or call Rosie Whisenant at (830) 278 4184.
