THE STORY: Boeing, Boeing is set in the 1960's, and centers on bachelor Bernard, who has a flat in Paris, and three stewardesses (Gloria, the American who flies for TWA; Gretchen, the German who flies for Lufthansa, and Gabriella, the Italian who flies for Alitalia) all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard's life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay, and complications such as weather and a new, speedier Boeing jet disrupt his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in the city simultaneously, and catastrophe looms. Add in Bernard's harried live-in assistant Berthe, and all systems are go for an evening of high-flying and hilarious fun!

Parkway West Philanthropy--Make-A-Wish Foundation

Parkway West is honored to be able to partner with Make-A-Wish.


Longhorn Universe, let's do what we do to help kids in our area who are battling difficult illness to give them something to look forward to and have a little better day.


Every day around the world, a child battling a critical illness will receive a wish. During a family’s darkest days, wishes can inspire hope, build strength, uplift spirits and encourage the belief in the impossible. Whether it’s a wish to have a puppy, meet a celebrity or be a superhero, each wish we grant at Make-A-Wish is as unique as each child. Yet, one thing remains consistent – the undeniable power wishes can have on a child’s emotional and physical health.


At Make-A-Wish, it is our vision to grant every eligible child’s wish – to ensure more kids have joyful experiences ... and some of the best days of their lives. Because wishes aren’t just nice – they are necessary. This is why wishes matter. This is Make-A-Wish.
