  • Boeing Boeing Theatre Performances Feb. 21-26

    The third show of SMSU Theatre’s season is the hilarious 1960s farce, Boeing Boeing. Performances are February 21-25 at 7:30 p.m. and February 26 at 2 p.m. Dinner theatre is available Saturday, February 25. All performances are in the SMSU Fine Arts Theatre. Show tickets are $10 and are available at www.SMSUtickets.com and at the door. The performance on Tuesday, February 21 is free to SMSU students with a valid student ID.

    Boeing Boeing, by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans, centers around Bernard, who is living the high life of a Paris bachelor in the swingin’ ’60s. Successfully juggling secret engagements to three gorgeous international stewardesses, his life couldn’t be more perfect — that is, until a speedier new Boeing jet brings all three ladies to Paris at the same time and throws off all his schemes and plans. Add in the complication of a visiting school friend, and Bernard’s Paris flat has gotten far too crowded, resulting in the madcap action and sparkling wit that make this hilarious farce an audience favorite.

    Boeing Boeing is directed by guest director Anne Byrd of Bloomington, Minn., a professional director in the Twin Cities area and a faculty member at Normandale Community College. Byrd’s work on the production is made possible by Friends of the Theatre. Assistant Professor of Theatre and SMSU Theatre Arts alumnus Mike Lenz of Cottonwood, Minn., is the scenic and lighting designer and technical director. Professor of Theatre Sheila Tabaka of Marshall, Minn., is the costume designer. Taylor Engel, a senior Theatre Arts and Music-Vocal Performance double major from St. James, Minn., is the sound designer. Morgan Benson, a junior Theatre Arts major from Tracy, Minn., is the stage manager and the publicity manager. Professor of Theatre Nadine Purvis Schmidt of Estelline, S.D., is the producer. The cast and major crew include:

    • Emilie Baartman, a senior Theatre Arts and Broadcast & Digital Media double major from Brandon, S.D., as Gretchen.

    • Marlen Cervantes, a sophomore Public Relations major from Marshall, Minn., as Gabriela.

    • Paul Ragan, a sophomore History and Secondary Education major, Theatre Arts minor from Fosston, Minn., as Bernard.

    • Payton Shively, a senior Theatre Arts major from Council Bluffs, Iowa, as Berthe.

    • Sydney Stewart, a senior Marketing major from Rockford, Ill., as Gloria.

    • Dean Zinda, a sophomore Culinology and Hospitality Management double major from Oak Creek, Wis., as Robert.

    • Joel Gay, a senior Theatre Arts major, Creative Writing minor from Lake City, Minn., is the assistant stage manager and master electrician.

    • Jenna Miller, a junior Theatre Arts major from Marshall, Minn., is the costume researcher.

    • Malorie Hudson, a sophomore Early Childhood Education major and Theatre Arts minor from Rochester, Minn., is the house manager.

    The dinner theatre available on February 25 is an add-on option for $22 (for a total price of $32 for dinner and the show), and must be booked by February 21. The dinner features a European-themed menu created and prepared by the SMSU Student Hospitality Organization (SHO) Club: Lemony chicken orzo soup, schnitzel with green beans and potato pancakes, and crème brulée for dessert. The vegetarian meal option substitutes Lemony orzo soup, and Eggplant schnitzel. The dinner theatre dinner seating will be 5:45-6:15 p.m. in Individualized Learning 116, the Culinology Restaurant.

    Boeing Boeing is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. For more information, please call the Theatre Office at (507) 537-7103.
