Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti and translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans is a 'riotous farce' which has enjoyed many successful revivals in London and on Broadway. Set in the swinging 1960s it follows bachelor Bernard who is juggling three gorgeous air stewardesses who are all engaged to him without knowing about each other. His perfect life begins hit turbulence when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new, speedier Boeing jet results in all three fiancées being in town simultaneously...
The cast for the production includes Adam Moulder (Bernard), Theo Leonard (Robert), Maria Waters (Berthe), Sarah Evans (Gloria), Louise Bakker (Gretchen), and Sophie Platts-Martin (Gabriella). It is directed by Roger Beaumont.
Victor/Victoria features a book by Blake Edwards, music by Henry Mancini, lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and additional music by Frank Wildhorn. Set in Paris in 1934, this musical comedy is about a woman pretending to be a man, pretending to be a woman. It was last seen on Broadway in 1995 in a production which starred Julie Andrews in the title role.
This amateur production is directed by Angus Jacobs with musical direction by Matt Gould. It is produced on behalf of SEDOS by Clare Harding.
