Fasten your seat belts and get ready for a mile-high adventure as Boeing Boeing flies back into town! Come June, W!LD RICE’s acclaimed production of this Tony Award-winning comedy will have audiences rolling in the aisles of the Victoria Theatre.
W!LD RICE’s Boeing Boeing first opened at Raffles Hotel’s Jubilee Hall in October 2002. It was the first production to set the play in Asia. Due to overwhelming popular demand, Boeing Boeing has been re-staged twice – in 2005 at the Victoria Theatre and in 2010 at the Drama Centre Theatre. All three productions played to sold-out houses.
15 years later, Boeing Boeing soars back onto our radar in the capable hands of director Pam Oei, who was part of the casts of both the 2002 and 2005 productions.
“Boeing Boeing ranks right up there as one of the most favourite shows I have ever performed in,” says Oei. “It’s a tight, laugh-a-minute script and there is no feeling on earth that can compare to what goes on inside an actor as he or she makes the entire theatre roar deliriously with laughter. It’s the best feeling in the world!”
She is looking forward to providing top-notch in-flight entertainment for audiences with the help of a brand-new company of artists and theatre-makers.
Some of Singapore’s finest, funniest actors will take centre stage in Boeing Boeing, including Rodney Oliveiro, Shane Mardjuki, Oon Shu An and Judee Tan.
Behind the scenes, award-winning designers Eucien Chia, James Tan and Frederick Lee will be bringing their formidable talents to bear on the set, lighting and costumes respectively.
“I greatly admire the work of everyone in this powerful creative team, and can’t wait to get this flight off the ground with them!” Oei observes. “Audiences are in for the time of their lives.”
“Nurturing local talents both on stage and off has been part of W!LD RICE’s mission from the very beginning,” says Ivan Heng, Artistic Director of W!LD RICE. “We’re so pleased to see Pam go from performing in to taking the reins on one of the funniest shows that has ever played on a Singapore stage!”
Tickets to Boeing Boeing go on sale via SISTIC from now. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets promptly to take full advantage of a special discount scheme that incentivises early booking.
