New Actors say ‘Allo ‘Allo to the Apollo!

The Apollo Players are always on the lookout for more new talent, whether onstage or to contribute to the multitude of skills that go to make a production, and we are delighted to welcome three brand new Apollo actors to the stage for ‘Allo ‘Allo! which opens on July 8th.

Reuben Loake is familiar to Island audiences for his many performances with the Newchurch Players and Origins Theatre to name but two, in roles ranging from pantomime dames to an anguished would-be suicide. His breadth of experience ideally suits him for the role of General Schmelling, the über-officer in charge of the bumbling German presence in Nouviens.

Joanna Jenner, playing the seductive Yvette, also has plenty of experience to bring to our stage: a theatre studies graduate, she is a dance and drama teacher who is involved with RedTIE 's new Physical Theatre.

The role of Mimi is always a challenging one to fill: the actress must be young, small, attractive and highly talented. However, director Steve Reading has managed to find a newcomer to the Apollo stage who fits all these requirements: Esther Poucher is another RedTIE actress who is making a transition to the adult stage with stunning results.

We would like to welcome our three newcomers to the Apollo – they are part of a brilliant cast currently rehearsing what will be an amazing show!

‘Allo ‘Allo! runs from 8-16 July: tickets and more information here:
