The next offering by the theatre students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville takes a look back at the 1960s. Boeing Boeing tells the story of a swinging bachelor in a swinging time.

The play will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, March 10-12, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 13, in The Little Theatre. Admission is $5.

Boeing Boeing tells the story of Bernard who lives in a Paris flat and is engaged to three gorgeous stewardesses at the same time. His perfect life gets bumpy when his friend, Robert, comes to stay, and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. 

Soon, all three stewardesses are in Paris simultaneously and timid Robert is forgetting which lies he told to which stewardess.
