Have you missed the sound of the iconic xylophone and Gladys’ Pugh gravelly Welsh accent from the hit TV show Hi-de-Hi? Then you’re in for a real treat this week as HAODS are performing their take on the show from Wednesday (16 February) at the HAODS studio with a 3-course dinner from Luscombes at the Golden Ball.
HAODS annual dinner theatre is running from 16-20 and 23 24 & 26 February at 6.00pm, with matinees on Sunday 20 – Saturday 26 February at 1.00pm. The show is family-friendly, so kids can come too!
The meal will be catered and served by Stephen Luscombe from the Golden Ball at Assendon, and of course, will be fitting a 1950’s holiday camp, but with Stephen’s very special deliciousness thrown in! The menu comprises cauliflower and stilton soup, bangers and mash with caramelised onions and Spotted Dick (what else?) for pudding, with lashings of custard, of course. Unlike the 1950s there’s a vegetarian option too!
Julie Huntington, Chair of HAODS who will be play Gladys said, “Lots of usual faces are in the show, including a cameo appearance by Councillor Glen Lambert, who is becoming a must in the Studio Productions! You will be welcomed into the famous Hawaiian Ballroom by Gladys Pugh and the rest of the Yellow coats, who will show you to your table and serve your drinks. They will then entertain you with a side-splitting farce about the rivalry between Sylvia and Gladys for Jeffrey Fairbrother’s attentions, culminating in the Best Girl Yellow coat Competition – Gladys is the front runner, but who will win?
Tickets are just £32 including the 3 course meal. Box Office www.kentontheatre.co.uk or 01491 525050
