Dereham Theatre Company’s Spring Play in 2019 will be a 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 to go and work there. The annual “Miss Yellowcoat” competition will decide who. Imagine the rivalry!

Cleaner Peggy, meanwhile, is thrilled that this will bring the prospect of a vacancy for a new yellowcoat at the Crimpton-on Sea camp and convinces Jeffrey Fairbrother, the Entertainments Manager, that she is the ideal candidate for the job.

The Camp Host, Ted Bovis, 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.
