BRETFORTON Amateur Dramatics (BAD Theatre) are to mount the stage show of the classic British sitcom, ‘Allo ‘Allo, in Bretforton Theatrebarn next week.

Based on the hugely successful television series that ran for seven seasons, the uproarious comedy relates the adventures of hapless café owner, René, in occupied France.

It features all the show’s popular characters, including René’s tone-deaf wife Edith, his waitresses Mimi and Yvette, Michelle from the Resistance, Herr Flick from the Gestapo, and Officer Crabtree, the British agent masquerading as a French policeman.

The show will take place in the 180-seat professional theatre housed in a medieval tithe barn that once belonged to Evesham Abbey.

Alice Heather, chair of BAD Theatre, said: “Having started to rehearse this play before Covid, we’re relieved to be finally staging it – we hope, without any further Covid complications!

"It promises to be a hilarious show and we’re delighted our audiences will have a long-awaited chance to get out and enjoy themselves at the theatre.

"BAD (Bretforton Amateur Dramatics) is a very friendly group and hopefully following the Show, more people will be inspired to join us.”

‘Allo ‘Allo takes place from Thursday to Saturday, January 27-29. Performances start at 7.30pm and Thursday’s performance will be socially distanced.
