A stage version of the hit television show Hi De Hi will be at Wethersfield Village Hall, March 5-7 by Wethersfield Amateur Performers (WAP).

The annual "Miss Yellowcoat" competition will decide who gets the job.

Meanwhile, camp cleaner Peggy, meanwhile is thrilled at the prospect of a vacancy for a new yellowcoat and she convinces entertainments manager, Jeffrey that she is the ideal candidate for the job.

The tv show was written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, who also wrote Dad's Army and It Ain't Half Hot Mum. The title was the greeting the holiday makers heard. The inspiration was Jimmy Perry's experience when after being demobilised from the Army, he was a Redcoat at Butlins.

The series won a BAFTA as Best Comedy Series in 1984. Adapted for the stage by By Paul Carpenter and Ian Gower.
