Hi-de-Hi!
by Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower
adapted from the original TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft
Directed by Julie Petrucci

It's the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in the Bahamas and needs female Yellowcoats to go and work there. The annual "Miss Yellowcoat" competition will decide who. Imagine the rivalry! Camp cleaner Peggy (Vicky Hingley), meanwhile, is thrilled at the prospect of a vacancy for a new Yellowcoat and convinces Entertainment Manager Jeffrey (Simon Colston) that she is the ideal candidate for the job. Ted (Chris Shinn) is forced to employ numerous money-making schemes when his ex-wife turns up at the camp with a bailiff in tow and Yvonne (Christine Easterfield) and Barry Stuart-Hargreaves (Phil Law) send the rumour mill into its usual overdrive when Gladys is overheard escorting Jeffrey into his chalet late one evening. The cast also includes Clare McDonald, James Windle, Michael Williamson, Martin George, Caroline Blair, Paul Gaskell, with Yellowcoats Emma Foltynie, Jane Boden, Grace Harper, Penelope Clay, Jan Mangan and Marilyn Dew. Hi-de-Hi, Campers!

This amateur production of "Hi-de-Hi!" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
