What to see at the Pyramid of crafts, in Saint-Amand-Montrond, until December

After the summer holidays, the 2022 cultural season of the City of Saint-Amand-Montrond, with its “eclectic” programme, according to Emmanuel Riotte, mayor (Les Républicains), is “plural, rich, varied and surprising”, according to Raphaël Fosset, his deputy in charge of culture, arts and heritage, will continue, on September 23, at 9 p.m., at the Pyramid of Crafts, with the famous play by Francis Veber: Fool’s dinner.


Within the framework of the Tous au théâtre festival (23 and 24 September) the comedy was popularized on the big screen in 1998 by Jacques Villeret, the unforgettable François Pignon, infatuated with matchmaking model, Thierry Lhermitte, the organizer – with his circle of friends – of “eat the famous idiots night” (Pierre Brochant), or even Daniel Prévost, the stubborn tax inspector (Lucien Cheval).
If these actors had given way – to Philippe Rolland, Pascal Boursier and Arnaud Lecomte respectively –, the dialogue written, in 1993, by Francis Veber, one of the masters of French comedy, had to hit the Pyramid’s public target. .

The end of the year will be marked by another festival, which is one of the novelties of this season, The voice of off, over three days: Notre Dame de Paris, other musicals (December 2, 9 p.m.), family circus (December 3, 9 p.m.) and You’re kidding Mr Tanner (4 December, 4 pm).

“These are creations broadcast during the festival of Avignon”, says Raphaël Fosset while lifting the veil on the artistic agenda.

“We want the cultural program to be aimed at the largest number of people so as not to please only a portion of the population, explained the elected official. I want the menu of the artistic agenda to stay true to the residents, their feelings and expectations. Maybe some things will not find their audience, we’ll see. Ultimately, we’ll note what worked, and what didn’t, according to room attendance and audience feedback.
