The Smile-High Club Comes to Vive Les Arts!
“BOEING BOEING” by Marc Camoletti
It is the Swinging Sixties and successful bachelor Bernard is even more successful with the ladies. In fact, he juggles the hearts of three air hostesses. Bouncing from one beautiful stewardess to another, keeping one up, one down and one pending. Love is in the air, but fasten your seatbelts because in this 2008 Tony Award winner, bliss is about to go into a comedic tailspin!
The director of this production is not requiring a memorized prepared piece. Text from the play will be provided for the auditioning participants. Direction is given along the way and participants need not fear that they will in any way be embarrassed. Though the selection process does imply some competition, the process is made as pleasant as possible. This collaboration will embrace non-traditional and color blind casting. All possibilities of appropriate dialects will be explored.
Auditions will be held on December 7th and 8th at Vive Les Arts Theatre.
-Beginning at 6:30 PM
-First rehearsal will be Wednesday, December 9th (Headshots will be taken)
