IT WAS a TV comedy hit that entertained audiences around the world and transferred successfully to the stage.
So if Marsden suddenly seems populated by German soldiers, French policemen with very dodgy accents and girls from the Resistance who says things only once, then you know what has happened.
’Allo ’Allo has acquired a distinctly Colne Valley flavour and will doubtless be having audiences at the Parochial Church Hall howling with laughter for almost a week.
Marsden Church Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society are expert laughter makers and gagmaster Peter Armitage is in charge of this set of escapees from what was dubbed a classic BBC comedy series.
Peter directs a team of experienced actors offering an hilarious night out in the company of all the favourite characters from the popular series.
Chris Comber will play Lt Gruber, Rob Pogson adds another feather to his cap as the flamboyant Italian Captain Bertorelli and David Wilkins will be mangling more than one language as the policeman Crabtree.
The central role of cafe owner Rene, played on TV and stage by Huddersfield-born actor Gorden Kaye, goes here to Eddie Hoyle with Vivienne Payne as his wife, Edith.
'Allo 'Allo opens in Marsden on May 12 and runs to May 16 with performances each evening.
Tickets are £7 from Duncan's Hairdressers, Warehouse Hill, Marsden. Telephone 01484 845311 (shop hours only).
