Next week audiences are invited to join in along the chalet lines as the People’s Theatre in Heaton is transformed into 1950s holiday camp Maplins!

This adaptation of the hugely popular TV series sees its host of colourful characters brought to the stage. Will Gladys capture her boss’s heart? Will chalet maid Peggy achieve her burning ambition to become a Yellowcoat? Will that rogue Ted ever stop trying to scam the campers? Whatever happens, don’t be late for the knobbly knees contest in the Hawaiian Ballroom!

HI-DE-HI! by Jimmy Perry and David Croft (who also penned Dad’s Army) ran for an incredible 58 episodes between 1980-1988, scooping a BAFTA along the way for Best Comedy.

Based on Perry’s own experiences as a Butlins Redcoat, the show charts the exploits of the Camp entertainment staff led by bumbling ex-professor Jeffrey Fairbrother.

The nights may be closing in, but it’s eternal summer at this holiday resort in Crimpton-on-Sea where the Yellowcoats are always on hand with a smile and a joke. 

Fast, funny and warm-hearted, HI-DE-HI! promises to be a fun-packed night out full of comedy, laughter and music. There’s even prizes to be won, with Camp competitions including ‘Guess the Baby’ and a dance contest. Unfortunately we don’t think Heath and Safely regulations will let us recreate the infamous Blindfold Bicycle Competition!

So don’t hang about and be sure to reserve your deckchair by the Olympic-sized swimming pool. And when those Yellowcoats shout “hi-de-hi” remember to come back with a nice loud “ho-de-ho”!

Also showing, the exhibition ‘Born With A Darker Tan’ by Jayamini de Silva, presented in association with the Biscuit Factory. See this stunning exhibition in our newly decked out foyer before the show.
