Latest Show
Hi De Hi Spring 2023

The stage adaptation of the hugely popular British TV series, which revisits the 1950’s

and Maplins Holiday Camp with its host of colourful characters.
It’s the start of a new season and founder Joe Maplin announces that he is setting up a camp in the

Bahamas and needs female yellowcoats (entertainers) to go and work there.

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 its usual overdrive when

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

Hi-de-hi, campers!

What the reviews from Lydney and Ross-on-Wye say:


Was like being transported back in time to the TV program I truly loved watching. They don't make them like they used to.....

Peggy played by Louise Toft was brilliant and Gladys Pugh,  played by Victoria Obermaier, her voice and wit were just brilliant.

Thank you for a most enjoyable evening. All the hard work and research really paid off. Good luck in Ross on Wye, You're all amazing."

"We thoroughly enjoyed the show Saturday night. If you haven't seen it, book seats for the shows in Ross now."

"I had a lovely evening watching Hi de hi at Lydney Town Hall. I laughed so much."

Wonderful cast including especially Gladys, Jeffrey, Ted, Peggy and Mr Partridge. Thank you.

"We came to the show on Saturday afternoon and left feeling so happy and uplifted.

It was such a fun, happy show and the cast were amazing. Thank you."

"Well done all for a great performance. We were really impressed by all elements, including the set design and the way it was used by the cast. The cast were wonderful and really brought the show to life. It's a measure of how well you did when a 16 and 13 yr old enjoy a show, despite knowing nothing about it."

"What a beautifully executed performance at the Larruperz Centre in Ross on Wye. Hope the two today go as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening."

Thoroughly enjoyed the performance of Hi-De-Hi. All of the actors were excellent. I thought the lady who played Peggy was particularly good - she was very funny and has great comic timing. Well done all. I will look forward to the pantomime in January!
