Valrico’s Village Players to take audiences on a ride with Boeing Boeing

VALRICO — The Village Players premier Boeing Boeing on Friday (June 8) at the James McCabe Theater, 506 N Fifth St. Opening night includes dinner with the show and doors open at 7 p.m. before the curtain goes up at 8 p.m.

This 1960’s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian lothario Bernard, who has Italian, German and American fiancees. Each are airline hostesses with frequent layovers. He keeps "one up, one down and one pending" until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard’s apartment, at the same time.

Reservations are required for the dinner show. The performance is $35 per person and includes dinner with dessert and complimentary ice tea or water. Attendees can also purchase a soda for $1. Food is served buffet style.

There will also be regular show dates following the opening Dinner & a Show performance. Evening show dates are June 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23 with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. and curtain up at 8 p.m. There will be two matinees on June 10 and 17 with doors open at 2:30 p.m. and curtain up at 3 p.m.

General admission for other performances are $18 and $15 for students, seniors and military.

Groups of 10 or more can prepay $15 and reserve seating is available upon request.

Tickets for the Dinner and a Show performance and all other performances of Boeing Boeing can be purchased online at thevillageplayersvalrico.com. For more information or for help purchasing tickets, call (813) 480-3147 or (813) 643-8292.
