Bernard, an American in Paris, has the setup of the decade. He has three girlfriends who all believe he will marry them.
They are all flight attendants working for three different airlines on three different schedules, so nothing can happen for any of them to ever meet.
It’s perfect. Then, they all get put on faster airplanes, and you can well imagine what happens.
Add his friend Robert, who wants to get in on the action, and the housekeeper who has to keep things straight, and you will be in for an evening of laughter.
All tickets are $15.

(Miss Julia’s Marvelous Makeover) at Kimbel’s, Wachesaw
Miss Julia is looking forward to an easy, restful summer, but before she can turn around good Sam announces that he is running for the state senate. Then a long-lost cousin announces that her granddaughter is on her way to Abbotsville so Julia can give her some polish and find her a husband.
On top of that, Sam has a gallbladder episode so that Julia has to take his place on the campaign trail, and the rude and unkempt Trixie proves more than Julia can handle. In this marvelous addition to the popular series, Miss Julia is sure to have a summer that she — and Abbotsville — will never forget.

(Bluffing) at Ocean One
At home in the South, a retired and aging Jay Bluffing runs across an old magazine article that triggers the remembrance of a significant period in his life, decades ago. It’s the mid-1980s and Bluffing, crushed by an incident involving his law practice, has left Kentucky and landed on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
As he wanders the city in search of himself, his wry sense of humor intact, a chance meeting with playwright and screenwriter Marty Sequatchee throws Bluffing into a world of Off-Broadway theatre, beautiful young actresses … and murder.
