Syracuse 500


Set in the bustling1960s, Bernard is a swinging bachelor who has the world on a string:  a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses whom are all engaged to him at the same time without knowing about each other.  However, Bernard’s life encounters turbulence when his friend Robert comes for a visit and a new speedier Boeing jet throws off his carefully planned itinerary.  Catastrophe looms when all three stewardesses come into town simultaneously and friend Robert keeps forgetting what helpful lies he’s told to whom!
Starring in the show as the troubled Bernard is Doug Rothgeb of Omaha.  His best friend Robert is played by Robert Carrera of Bellevue.  The bevy of beautiful stewardesses are played by Aubree Sweeney of Plattsmouth, Brenna Thompson of Lincoln and Abigail Fletcher of Omaha.  Fan favorite Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth plays the bad-tempered housekeeper, Berthe.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, production dates are October 14, 15, 19-22 and 27-29.  Thursday through Saturday curtain times are 7pm.  Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  Tickets are $19 each and advance reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at 402.234.2553.
