2017 seems to be the year W!ld Rice is bringing back some of their biggest hits to date: first La Cage, and now the phenomenal Boeing Boeing!

Since its Parisian premiere in December 1960, Boeing Boeing has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most performed French play throughout the world. The play was also adapted into a Hollywood movie, starring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis.

Following the exploits of a modern day Lothario as he juggles his three air stewardess girlfriends based on to-the-minute scheduling around their flightplans, it seems Bernard’s got his playboy lifestyle all figured out. But when his friend Robert comes to stay, and flights begin to delay and speed up with natural disasters and faster planes, how long can he keep up the facade?

W!ld Rice was the first company to set the play in Asia in its Singaporean debut in October 2002, and now 15 years later, Boeing Boeing flies back onto our radar in the capable hands of director Pam Oei with a brand-new cast and creative team to provide audiences with top-notch in-flight entertainment. Pam Oei herself was part of the cast as one of the stewardesses in the 2002 and 2005 stagings of the play!

Boeing Boeing’s star studded cast will consist some of Singapore’s very best, funniest actors, including Rodney Oliveiro, Shane Mardjuki, Sangeetha Dorai, Oon Shu An and Judee Tan, along with award-winning W!ld Rice regular designers Eucien Chia, James Tan and Frederick Lee working on set, lighting and costumes. This June, fasten your seat belts and get ready for a mile-high adventure as Boeing Boeing flies back into town on the fabulous Victoria Theatre stage!
