Allo Allo bought to the stage by HATS

Watch out for paintings with big boobies, eccentric policemen and a cockatoo as the sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo comes to the area.

The Henlow Amateur Theatrical Society presents the BBC sitcom which relates the adventures of a hapless cafe owner, Rene, in occupied France.

Characters including Rene, Major-General von Klinkerhoffen and the Gestapo officer Herr Flick will be in the show.

The show tells the story of 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.

The show is on Friday September 25, Saturday September 26, Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3 with six performances across the four dates.

It starts at 7.30pm each night and matinees on Saturday starting at 2pm

Tickets for the show are £8 for adults and £6 for concessions.

People are advised to book soon as there are only 100 seats available.
