‘ALLO ‘ALLO! by Wyong Drama Group
“I will say zis only once … “
Café owner René juggles a menagerie including irrepressible, tone-deaf chanteuse wife Edith, waitresses Yvette Carte-Blanche and Mimi Labonq, smitten German Officer Grüber, Herr Flick of the Gestapo,
“It is I… Leclerc”, Police Officer Crabtree (“good moaning!”) and many more.
There will be laughter and music, skulduggery and magic and a cabaret for all to savour and enjoy.
November brings to The Art House the classic British comedy ’Allo ‘Allo! By Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft. Directors Howard Oxley and Duncan Mitchell are making it a “Night out in World War II”. As we did last year, we are teaming with the Fab Fakes Art Exhibition hoping to attract elite audience from all over the Coast.
Arrive early for the music of the War era and enjoy the art exhibition, then enter the world of madcap humour with our café proprietor as he tries to fool not only the Germans, but the Gestapo, the French Resistance and of course his beautiful songstress of a wife Edith.
Playing René is Howard Oxley, (well known for all his Basil Fawlty episodes) a veteran comic, with his wife Edith, Ruth Jordon. These two have been doing plays together in Wyong since 1984! With Duncan Mitchell (Herr Flick) and Marc Calwell (Gruber), also veterans of the group, and a host of others, the cast has depth and quality guaranteed to please any audience.
Our aim at Wyong Drama Group is to provide reasonably priced entertainment for our community against rising fees at The Art House in an area crying out for live theatre but constrained by the rising costs. If we “fill the house” we can do it! So please come and enjoy our show and help us continue the 65 year tradition of Wyong Drama Group providing great live Theatre for the Coast.
Showing at The Art House, Anzac Avenue, Wyong.
