‘Allo ‘Allo Auditions

Dural Musical Society’s production of

‘Allo ‘Allo!

May 2019

The popularity of ‘Allo ‘Allo is a phenomenon that cannot be disputed. The classic television series, written by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, ran for 85 episodes over ten years from 1982 to 1992, regularly attracting many millions of viewers. The stage version by the same writers, follows the adventures of René Artois, the hapless café owner in Nouvien in war-torn occupied France.

The show follows the adventures of Rene Artois and his wife Edith as they try to keep the priceless portrait of “The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies” from falling into the hands of Hitler and the Germans. As a result, Rene in a bizarre twist finds himself getting involved in helping both the German Forces, the British and the French Resistance all at the same time. All this fun goes to make a first-class, hilarious, laugh-a-minute comedy in the best British tradition – political incorrectness at its best!
