Rene and Mimi From 'Allo 'Allo!

LISTEN very carefully — there’s a French farce coming to Ponteland.

The Ponteland Repertory Society will bring TV show ‘Allo ‘Allo to the stage.

The comedy revolves around hapless cafe owner Rene and his wife Edith, along with waitresses, airmen and German officers.

Society stalwarts John Hutton and Brenda Rutter will reprise the roles of Rene and Edith, which they played several years ago, while Carole Davies makes her directing debut.

The show runs at Ponteland Memorial Hall from Tuesday to Saturday next week, at 7.30pm each evening. Tickets are available from Alan Newton Butchers in Merton Way on 01661 822985.
