Hi de Hi

hi-de-hi 8-11 May 2013. In this stage adaptation of the hugely popular TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, SCURC Dramatic Society revisited the 1950s and Maplins Holiday Camp with its host of colourful characters. It's the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in The Bahamas. He needs female yellowcoats to go and work out there and the annual 'Miss Yellowcoat' competition will decide who is to go. Rivalry between the girls is fierce, with Sylvia and Gladys joint forerunners to win the coveted yellow sash. Camp cleaner Peggy, meanwhile, 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 and Yvonne and Barry Stuart-Hargreaves send the rumour mill into overdrive when they overhear Gladys escorting Jeffrey into his chalet late one evening.
