Airport sponsoring Boeing Boeing play

Have your say

Doncaster Airport is continuing its marketing drive by teaming up with Sheffield Theatres to promote a new aviation-themed play set to take centre stage this May.

The airport, and holiday firm Thomson, have sponsored the production of Boeing Boeing which takes to the Crucible stage from Thursday May 15 to Saturday June 7.

Boeing Boeing is a comedy by Marc Camoletti, that puts cheating Bernard in a dilemma when his air hostess fiancée turns up at his apartment on an unscheduled stopover unaware his other two girlfriends have had the same idea.

As all three women prepare for a night with their husband-to-be, can Bernard stop his beautifully designed love life from coming to a sticky end?

Jonathan Humphreys, who previously directed Happy Days and The Village Bike at the theatre, returns to Sheffield to direct this hilarious farce on the Crucible stage.

Steve Gill, managing director of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “As a regional airport we are developing key strategic partnerships with local organisations and the theme of this production, albeit tongue in cheek, gave us a great reason to work with Sheffield Theatres.”

Dan Bates, chief executive of Sheffield Theatres, said: “Our partnerships with the local business community are vital, and we’re really excited to be working with the airport and Thomson on Boeing Boeing. There’s a very obvious connection with the aviation theme in the play, but this partnership is also about promoting what our region has to offer.”
