‘Allo ‘Allo!

Theatrecraft is absolutely delighted to announce that our amazing comedy ‘Allo ‘Allo has now been rescheduled for April 2022 at the Playhouse Whitstable.

This stage version of ‘Allo ‘Allo follows the adventures of Rene, a hapless cafe owner in Nazi occupied France, and his wife Edith, who entertains their patrons with her special brand of “cabaret”.

Rene must keep many secrets; he has concealed a priceless portrait in a knockwurst sausage on behalf of the Nazis (but plans to keep it for himself), he is reluctantly hiding two British Airmen for the French Resistance and there will be big trouble if his wife discovers his amorous affairs with his young waitresses.

Matters come to a head with the news that the Fuhrer is to visit the town and the cafe become filled with tricksters intending to impersonate or assassinate Hitler.  Rene will need all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life!

Come and join us for this wonderful version of this very British comedy.

The Barber of Seville

The Barber of Seville

Part of the Welsh National Opera’s 75th anniversary tour

Mischievous trickery and action-packed fun

Count Almaviva has fallen in love with Dr Bartolo’s ward Rosina, but her guardian has other ideas and wants to keep her for himself. Almaviva enlists the help of local barber, Figaro, to outwit his plan, and through a series of comical events and deception Figaro takes on the role of matchmaker. Will he save the day and true love prevail?

Welsh National Opera’s much-loved production of The Barber of Seville – set around a traditional Spanish piazza – partners wonderfully with Rossini’s witty and expressive melodies. With an unforgettable score including Figaro’s Aria, this is the perfect feel-good opera.

Sung in English, with English and Welsh subtitles.

Madam Butterfly

Madam Butterfly

Part of the Welsh National Opera’s 75th anniversary tour

On the surface a dream-like wedding for a groom and his young, beautiful bride – but behind the façade is a cruel reality. Abandoned and betrayed, Butterfly finds her world crashing around her as her one chance for freedom becomes her prison. Her desperation and pain escalate as she fights for survival with devastating consequences.

Madam Butterfly is a powerful story of unrequited love, human pain and suffering which is magnificently intensified by Puccini’s glorious music, promising a night of drama and emotion. Inspired by Puccini’s fantasy landscape of exotic pleasures, Lindy Hume’s new production interprets Butterfly’s famous story through a dystopian prism.
