The Brisbane Gang Show is a Brisbane theatre tradition, performing to audiences for the past 67 years making it the longest running Gang Show (variety musical) in Australia. The production is produced by Scouts Queensland and has seen the cast rehearsing since the start of February. A performance of this size could not be possible without a mammoth support team of over 150 volunteers ensuring all aspects of the production are covered. The volunteer support team work on everything from front of house, set design, wardrobe and even catering to ensure the cast and crew are kept nourished during the season.
Chief Commissioner of Scouts Queensland Daryl Scott says “The Gang Show is one of the great traditions of Scouting dating back 67 years and consistent with a number of elements of our Purpose. The Brisbane Gang Show provides young people with the opportunity to perform on stage developing a range of skills including self-confidence and self-expression.”
“The joy that the Gang Show cast get out of performing is very evident which makes this very entertaining for audience members,” says Mr Scott.
The Brisbane Gang Show dates to 1952 where the first performance was held at All Saints Hall for a ticket price of 30c per ticket. Times have changed since 1952 however; the high-performance standard and comradery remain exceptional.
Brisbane Gang Show spokesperson Shaun Sandilands says, “Nothing says July school holidays like attending the Brisbane Gang Show. The 2019 production will have audiences on the edges of their seats with so many amazing voices and stunning dances. The Brisbane Gang Show is all about family entertainment and creating memories for our audience members to take away.”
