THERE'S holiday fun with Hi-De-Hi at Rugby Theatre next week.
Set in a 1950's holiday camp the Series revolved around the lives of the camp's management and entertainers, most of them struggling actors or has beens.
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 favourites to win the coveted yellow sash.
Camp cleaner Peggy, meanwhile, is thrilled at the prospect of a vacancy or a new Yellowcoat and convinces Entertainments Manager Jeffrey 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.
Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower have penned the stage show based on the hit 1980's TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft.
The production is directed by Mike Allen and runs from July 14 to 21, nightly at 7.30pm, with an extra matinée at 3pm on July 21.
Tickets can be bought from the box office on 01788 541234 or in person at the Henry Street theatre weekday evenings from 7pm to 8pm, on Saturday mornings from 10.30am to 12.30 pm and during the week of the show from noon to 2pm.
