The story sees Sid Boggle and his friend Bernie Lugg engineer a holiday to a nudist camp in the hope of tricking their prim-and-proper girlfriends Joan Fussey and Anthea Meeks into showing some skin. But the campsite turns out to be non-nudist and the girlfriends refuse to share tents with the boys.
Things hot up when a group of Chayste Place finishing school girls set up camp, under guidance of Dr Soaper (played by director Jason Crompton) and matron Miss Haggard.
This is when the famous Babs Windsor “bra scene” unfolds, during a vigorous aerobics session — Gail Costello skilfully “loses” her bra with her back to the audience and to much hilarity. Other campers include the braying Harriet Potter and long-suffering husband Peter.
All the actors put in a confident performance, with many echoes of the famous characters in the film, great comic timing and oodles of energy.
