Hi-De-Hi by Paul Carptenter and Ian Gower
adapted from the original TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft


It’s the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces he is setting up a camp in the Bahamas and needs female yellowcoats to go and work there and the annual “Miss Yellowcoat” competition will decide who. Imagine the rivalry!

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 Gladys is overheard escorting Jeffrey into his chalet late one evening.
