Archives - Hi-de-Hi

by Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower
Adapted from the original TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft

Directed by Darren Barsby

Friday 22nd – Saturday 30th June 2012 in the Auditorium

A stage adaptation based on the popular TV comedy series, set in a holiday camp.

Set in the 1950s, founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in the Bahamas. He needs female Yellowcoats to go and work there and the annual ‘Miss Yellowcoat’ competition will decide who is to go. Camp Cleaner Peggy is thrilled at the prospect of a vacancy for a new Yellowcoat and convinces Entertainments Manager Jeffrey that she is the ideal candidate for the job.

Ted is forced to employ numerous money-making schemes when his ex-wife turns up at the camp with a bailiff in tow, while Yvonne and Barry send the rumour mill into overdrive when they overhear Gladys escorting Jeffrey into his chalet late one night.
