Our first show for 2019.
Allo Allo Wed 13 March – Sat 16 March
Based on the hugely popular TV comedy series, the stage version of Allo Allo follows the adventures of René, the hapless cafe owner in the war-torn occupied France, as he and his wife Edith struggle to keep themselves as priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis and kept in a sausage in their cellar. René is hiding two British airmen and is endeavoring to repatriate them with the help of the Resistance.
However, communications with London through a wireless disguised as a cockatoo add to many embarrassments he endures in the company of his patrons. Matters come to a head with the news that the Fuhrer is to visit the town and the cafe becomes filled with tricksters intending to impersonate Hitler before the event.
René will need all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life…!
