Clayton Stairs/South Strand News Tom Newmister as Bernard and Robbie O’Donnell as Robert rehearse a scene in which they are trying to figure out who is going with which flight attendant.


The Swamp Fox Players is now presenting “Boeing Boeing” at The Strand Theater in Georgetown.

Performance dates are May 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10 at 8 p.m. and May 4 and 11 at 2:30 p.m.

Director Inge Ebert, a Swamp Fox Players veteran, says this play is “super funny.”

“It is basically one comedic situation after another,” Ebert said. “This play is one of those farces that allows you to forget your troubles for a little over two hours and laugh at other people’s antics.”

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.

The cast is Tom Newmister as Bernard, Mary O’Donnell as Gloria, Jo Camlin as Bertie (house keeper), Robbie O’Donnell as Robert, Ariane Lieberman as Gabriella, and Robin Hearl as Gretchen.

Ebert said she first saw this Tony Award-winning play in Germany, her native country, and has wanted to direct it for a long time.

She said it was difficult to obtain the rights to produce the play because it was being rewritten.

“There are some absolutely fabulous lines in there,” she said.

“And timing always fascinates me in a comedy.”

She credits Roger Goedtel, the set designer, and the cast and crew for pitching in to decorate the set.

Ebert urges people to come out to see this comedy.

“It truly will be an evening of fun,” Ebert said.

All tickets are $15.
