Complete casting and creative team have been announced for the Paper Mill Playhouse's upcoming production of Marc Camoletti's Boeing-Boeing, which will begin performances at the New Jersey venue Jan. 18, 2012, prior to an official opening Jan. 22.

Directed by James Brennan, the limited engagement will continue through Feb. 12.

The cast will comprise Anne Horak (Gretchen), Brynn O'Malley (Gabriella), Heather Parcells (Gloria), John Scherer (Robert), Matt Walton (Bernard) and Tony winner Beth Leavel (Berthe).

Boeing-Boeing, according to the Paper Mill, "tells the tale of Bernard, an American playboy in swinging '60s Paris who juggles three flight-attendant fiancées-one American, one German, and one Italian. With the help of airline timetables and a phenomenally efficient housekeeper, he convinces each that she is his only love. But then a fast new Boeing jet puts the flight attendants on a collision course, hurtles Bernard's cunning deception towards disaster, and provides lift-off for laugh after laugh."



The design team includes set designer Ray Klausen, costume designer Brian Hemesath, lighting designer F. Mitchell Dana, hair and wig designer Bettie O. Rodgers and sound designer Randy Hansen. The production stage manager is Becky Fleming.

Single tickets are on sale from $25. Tickets may be purchased by calling (973) 376-4343, at the Paper Mill Playhouse Box Office at 22 Brookside Drive in Millburn, or online at www.papermill.org.
