It’s the madcap 1960s, and self-styled swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: he has three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him with no knowledge of each other. He keeps “one up, one down and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard’s apartment at the same time. In a hysterical whirlwind of mayhem timid Robert begins forgetting which lies he told to whom, and catastrophe looms. Directed by Abbey Crawford.

Cold readings from the script.
BERNARD (30-45) – an American architect and swinging bachelor. Handsome, in a conventional way. A ladies man who thinks he has the fairer sex completely figured out. Charming and narcissistic.
ROBERT (30-45) – Bernard’s old friend. Not a worldly chap. Unassuming, seeking adventure, but not sure he wants it. Unconventionally handsome.
BERTHA (40s-60s) – Bernard’s long-suffering housekeeper, tired of her employer’s crap, ready to walk out at any moment. Able to speak with a French dialect.
All three of the stewardesses must be confident, know-what-they-want girls. Take no prisoner kind of personalities, but all very distinct.
GABRIELLA (25-35) – the Italian fiancée, with a casual sensuality. A stewardess. Must have Italian dialect.
GLORIA (25-35) – the American fiancée, possibly southern, with an upbeat disposition. A stewardess.
GRETCHEN (25-35) – the German fiancée blessed with an aggressive nature. A stewardess. Must have a German dialect.
