CLASSIC BBC sitcom Hi-de-Hi is set to have audiences rolling with laughter in Droitwich this month.
The popular 1980s show, set in Maplins Holiday Camp and made famous by the likes of Ruth Madoc and Paul Shane, is being staged by the Norbury Players.
It runs at the town’s Norbury Theatre in Friar Street from April 19 to 21 and again from April 26 to 28.
Adapted from Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s original script by Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower, the show features the fictional
seaside town of Crimpton-on-Sea during the 1950s and 1960s.
The play focuses on the lives of the camp’s management and entertainers, based loosely on Butlins but with the redcoats replaced by yellowcoats.
Described as a spring pantomime, it is expected to be a hit with audiences who will also have the chance to join in the spirit by voting in the lovely yellowcoat competition.
Director Tony Catchpowle said: “The yellowcoats will take you through the comical events of a week at Maplins Holiday Camp.”
Tickets cost £10 (£9 for concessions) and can be booked online at www.norburytheatre.co.uk or by calling 01905 770154.
