'Allo 'Allo 2 - The Camembert Caper

‘Leesen very carefully, I weel say zis only wurnce . . .!’
On 17th September, the audience at the Chrysalis theatre could take a trip to Café Rene in war-time France to witness the trials and tribulations of France’s greatest, if unwilling hero, Rene Artois as he tried to deal with the resistance, the Germans, a pair of British airmen and the amorous advances of his serving girls.
Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy’s production of the stage show of ‘Allo ‘Allo’ in 2007 was a great success and for several years had been keen to do more, but only one stage script existed.
All that changed, when David Pibworth (the director) was given permission by one on the original writers, David Croft, to write a stage play ‘sequel’.
The cast of this production were: Rene Artois - David Lovesy, Edith - Sue Whyte, Yvette - Melanie Best, Mimi - Michelle Johnson, Michelle of the Resistance - Vicky Amies, Monsieur Alphonse the Undertaker - Gary Martindale, Monsieur Leclerc - Jon Davies, Madame Fanny - Erika Benning, Colonel Von Strohm - Richard Duncombe, Lt. Gruber - Chris Tennant, Capt. Geering - Alex Taylor, Herr Flick - Sean McDermott, Helga - Tracy Butler, General Von Klinkerhoffen - Matt Perris, Officer Crabtree - Steve Clark, British Airmen - Keith Lennox and Neil Harrison, Assorted French villagers and Germans - Roger Widdecombe, Jen Barber, Emma Dell, Matt Bayfield, Sandra Cowling, John Hopkins.
