Ballywillan Drama Group presents


by Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower, adapted from the original TV series by Jimmy Perry and David Croft

Welcome to Maplins, Britain’s favourite holiday camp, where the sun-drenched summer never ends.

It’s the 1959 season and Peggy still dreams of becoming a Yellowcoat, Ted is up to his money-making schemes again, Jeffrey, the Entertainments Manager, is caught in his chalet with who!!?? and Barry and Yvonne are busy practising their sand dance …

Starring many of the cast from the Ballywillan Drama Group production of Whistle Down the Wind in January, this family favourite will stir happy memories for many and introduce this classic comedy to a new generation.

The HI-De Hi! Stage Show features all your favourite characters from the BAFTA award-winning BBC comedy series. So, roll up your trousers and get those knobbly knees out as Ted, Gladys, Peggy and the rest of the Maplins gang ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime!

“Good morning campers, hi-de-hi!”
