Listen Very Carefully

Chichester Players need amateur actors for a forthcoming production of 'Allo 'Allo, after several cast members have had to drop out just as rehearsals were about to start.Rehearsals are held in room H10 at Chichester High School at 7.30 pm on Mondays and Thursdays, except where the Monday is a Bank Holiday, when there is a Tuesday rehearsal.The performances are in late June as part of the Festival of Chichester; there will be some Sunday afternoon rehearsals closer to production week. Actors will only be called to those rehearsals which involve their characters.

Director Romayne Brown says, "I need Michelle ("of the Resistance": a young woman), Leclerc, who is an elderly Frenchman running messages for the resistance and thinks he is the master of disguise , General von Schmelling, a ruthless German with a wooden leg and an eye patch, Lieutenant Gruber, who has an unrequited romantic interest in cafe owner Rene, and young men to play small but important bit parts of RAF officers and German soldiers." Actors will be expected to speak with the accent appropriate to their characters, and it may be possible to move some of the existing cast into other roles if new actors are especially suited to their parts.

The play was originally performed by members of the television cast at The London Palladium, has frequently been produced by amateur companies since at least the turn of the century, and is guaranteed to leave the audience laughing at its frequently ribald humour.
