Support The Scouts With a Little Variety
Caroline Wild | On 11, Jul 2014
In itâ€™s 63rd year the Brisbane Gang Show put on a performance full of singing, dancing and theatrics, entertaining audiences and giving itâ€™s cast and crew skills for life.
The musical variety show, currently on at the Schonell Theatre at The University of Queensland, is a comedy performance, showcasing the humours and small town country ways of Queenslandâ€™s Roma, a town stuck in the middle of a case of mistaken identity.
Lifeguards, shearers and Aussie animal onesies are all apart of the performance, to help bring Roma up to scratch for the International Games.
This showcase is not only put on for audiences, it is also designed for itâ€™s cast and crew as well, filled with Scout volunteers, it gives confidence and skills in the field of performing arts.
The opening night was full of family, friends and fellow scouts, as well as the Governor of Queensland Ms Penelope Wensley, who all enjoyed the kick off of this years season.
The cast, crew and orchestra are comprised of Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts, Rovers, Girl Guides and Leaders ranging in age from 10-30, who all want a chance to experience life on stage.
The stage show, full of truly Aussie one liners and revamped musical hits, gives the kids, and young adults, the experience and confidence that only standing on a stage, with a spotlight, can give.
There were a few minor hiccups, as is to be expected on opening night. However, audiences were left laughing and entertained, and a few amazing voices shined on stage, revealing some great young talent.
