'Allo 'Allo! Rehearsal Schedule
will run from the 14th to the 17th of October 2009, in St Josephs Hall, Kilcock.
Based on the hugely popular TV comedy series, the stage version of 'Allo 'Allo follows the adventures of René, the hapless café owner in war-torn occupied France, as he and his wife, Edith, struggle to keep for themselves a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis and kept in their cellar.
René is hiding two British airmen and is endeavouring, with the help of the Resistance, to repatriate them.
However, communications with London through a wireless disguised as a cockatoo add to the 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 café becomes filled with tricksters intending to impersonate Hitler before the event.
René will need all the wit he can muster to save his café and his life . . . !
