The brilliant Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy is back at The Arches Theatre this September!
If you came to see this amazing comedy troupe in their stage version of 'The Pink Panther - A Shot in the Dark' last year, then you know you are in for a great night as the two performances went down a storm with everyone in attendance.
Based on the hugely successful British television series that ran for a decade from 1982, this performance will follow the adventures of Rene Artois, a hapless cafe owner in German-occupied France during the Second World War!
Join Rene, Yvette, Herr Flick, Officer Crabtree and all your other show favourites, plus a range of fantastic and questionable accents, in early September. Final dates are yet to be confirmed, but this community production of 'Allo 'Allo is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
We have named this troupe 'Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy (MKTOC) at The Arches' as it is an extension of the premier comedy group MKTOC, which some of you may know that I am involved in. This new company will only perform at The Arches Theatre.
It is made up of a variety of individuals all with differing acting experiences - some are professional, some not and some are acting for the very first time. I will be able to tell you more over the next few months.
Keep checking back for information.
Until next time ...
