May 26, 2014 for 7 performances
Our Spring Production “Allo Allo” will be performed in the Dibble Tree Theatre from Monday 26th to Saturday 31st May.
Based on the hugely successful British television series that ran for seven seasons, this uproarious comedy relates the adventures of a hapless cafe owner, Rene, in occupied France. You can see all of your favorite TV characters in the flesh, including Rene's tone-deaf wife Edith, Major-General von Klinkerhoffen and the Gestapo officer Herr Flick!
He and his wife have stashed a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis 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 tricksters disguised as Hitler to frequent the cafe. Meanwhile Rene summons all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life.
A few years ago the theatre club put on one of a collection of entertaining plays called “Deckchairs”.
This involved making the audience believe they were on a warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer. No mean feat for late September!
Although “Deckchairs” had only two people on stage at any one time, a veritable army of people had collaborated over the previous months to create that warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer.
They covered many areas and included:- producer, stage manager, stage crew, set designer, lighting manager, sound engineer, props, wardrobe, make-up, publicity, ticket and box office staff, front of house manager, the list is endless.
Without these people there would have been no show. So, remember, belonging to a theatre club can encompass many different interests, from simply going to the Theatre, through to set design!
If you are looking for a new interest, why not get in touch. And if treading the boards or making costumes etc is your dream then perhaps we can help make it a reality. Let us make good use all those hidden talents.
