Cranbourne Amateur Dramatic Society will perform the stage version of the smash hit television comedy from the 70s and 80s on 11th, 12th and 13th April 2019 at 7:45pm as well as a matinee on Saturday 13 April at 2.30pm. The production will be at St Peter’s Hall, Hatchet Lane SL4 2EG. Tickets at £10 .

Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft, the original creators of the TV show and also known for ‘Allo ‘Allo, have adapted ‘Are You Being Served’ for the stage to the delight of fans everywhere. The play follows the hilarious misadventures and mishaps of the staff of Grace Brothers department store.  Set when Britain had recently entered the EEC, we see them preparing for ‘Common Market Week’ with a sale of German goods before they depart en masse for a staff holiday at a one star hotel in Spain.  With a booking mix-up, the language problem and a well meaning Spanish waitress, scrapes and misunderstandings inevitably follow for Mr Humphries and friends, not forgetting the unmissable Mrs Slocombe in her special Union Jack knickers.  Great laugh out loud entertainment for all.  Doubles Entendres should be expected.

Curtain up will be at 7.45pm on the evenings of Thursday, Friday and Saturday and there will also be a matinee on the Saturday afternoon at 2.30pm.For those who are too young to remember this successful television series aired in the 70’s and 80’s, the setting is in a department store, Grace Brothers, as the well loved staff prepare first for a sale of German goods and then depart en masse for a staff holiday at a one-star hotel in Spain. Will the tropical heat, Spanish crumpet, giant woof ‘n’ poofs and randy revolutionaries prove too much for our happy band? If you are happy to find out more, there will be a read-through and auditions coming up in January.
