Rugby Theatre says Hi-De-Hi with sitcom adaptation

A NEW version of a much loved sitcom will be bought to life at Rugby Theatre till Saturday.

Hi-de-Hi, a show set in the golden age of seaside holidays and larger than life characters.

The show has been written by Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower and is set in a 1950s holiday camp. It revolves around the lives of the camp’s management and entertainers, most of them struggling actors or has-beens.

It is 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.

This comedy is being directed by Mike Allen and features, among others, Michelle Marsella as Peggy, Tom Browning as Jeffrey and Debbie Higham as Gladys.

The show starts at 7.30pm each night with a matinee on Saturday starting at 3pm.

For further information about the show or to book tickets costing between £8 and £10, call the box office on 01788 541234.
