‘Allo ‘Allo brings crazy comedy to the Playhouse stage
‘Allo ‘Allo, based on the hugely successful British television series that ran for seven seasons, will hit the Playhouse stage in May.
Director Nigel Dick said fans of the hit TV series should love the play.
“This hilarious comedy relates the adventures of a hapless cafe owner, Rene, in occupied France,” Nigel said.
“You can see all of your favorite TV characters in the flesh, including Rene's tone-deaf wife Edith, the hapless Constable Crabtree, German Officer Lieutenant Gruber, Major-General von Schmelling, and the Gestapo officer Herr Flick!
Rene and his wife have stashed a priceless portrait in a sausage in their cellar, where two British airmen are also hiding until the Resistance can repatriate them.
“Communications with London using the wireless that is disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments this intrepid proprietor endures in the company of his patrons.
News that the Fuhrer is scheduled to visit the town inspires more hilarious escapades.
"Meanwhile Rene summons all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life.”
‘Allo ‘Allo will be performed by Bundaberg Players Inc for 5 performances - May 21, 22, 28 & 29 at 7:30pm, with a matinee - Sunday May 23 at 3:00pm.
Bookings open for Subscribers at 10am this Saturday; and for the general public at 10am this Sunday.
You can buy tickets at the Playhouse Theatre box office at 2b Steffensen Street weekends from 10am til 12 noon – either in person or by phone on 4153 1904; or online 24/7: The Playhouse Theatre - Home.
Tickets are $22 for Adults, $19 for Concession/Students and Groups 10+ $19.
“Bring a group along, enjoy some refreshments at the bar and enjoy a night of uproarious laughter,” Nigel said.
