Rene’s support for ‘Allo ‘Allo
AUDIENCES viewing Ilkeston Theatre Company’s production of ‘Allo ‘Allo this week will see a very special message in their programme.
Gordon Kaye, the star of the BBC TV show, penned a note for the theatre goers after hearing of the planned stage show when he visited Long Eaton last year.
The programme notes from the original Rene say: “On behalf of the Cafe Rene Regulars it is a joy for us to hear that the Ilkeston Theatre Company have decided to bring the story of How the War in Nouvion Really Was to the citizens of the surrounding area. Your presence at this performance will generate gales of laughter and crowd pleasing reactions for all the performers involved.
“I last depicted Rene in Brisbane, Australia for six weeks last year which brought my total close to the 2,000 mark of live performances.
The pilot television programme was created and shown in 1982. From 1984 to 1992 the television show totalled 91 episodes for worldwide release and in 1986 this stage show was born. Enjoy the show and tell your friends and neighbours!” Leon Wade plays the part of Monsieur Roger LeClerc, the Resistance's forger, master of disguises and café piano player responsible for delivering various goods of batteries, bombs and radio equipment to the café. This duty is undertaken by LeClerc in a variety of disguises and his catchphrase "It is I, Leclerc," accompanied by a raising of his glasses.
Allo Allo will be performed at St John Houghton School on Abbot Road, Kirk Hallam from 7.30pm from Thursday until Saturday, March 15.
Tickets priced £7 for adults and £5 concessions are available from Moorleys Print and Publishing on Park Road, Ilkeston, Hamilton’s Schoolwear on Granby Street and Colin’s Barber Shop on Nottingham Road.
They will also be available on the door.
For more information call 0115 925 6239.
