Adelaide Gang Show
Celebrating over 50 years of youth theatre
2010 saw the fantastic 50th ADELAIDE GANG SHOW. Steeped in a fine history of song and dance many a current day Adelaide ICON got a taste for centre stage in a SCOUTS GANG SHOW, Keith Conlon (TV Presenter), John Bannon (retired Politician), Dave O’Neil (Radio Presenter & Comedian) and Shane Jacobsen (Film Star & Comedian) to mention just a few. The huge cast and crew of the Adelaide GANG SHOW are already rehearsing for what will be the biggest and the best SHOW for not only the family and friends of Scouting members but also the general public who can take this opportunity to experience the fun, frivolity and sheer enjoyment that this show can offer.
Scouts SA’s Adelaide Gang Show is a fantastic youth theatre organisation, involving Scouts and Guides from all over South Australia in a professional-scale theatre production, aiming to build skills and confidence in our youth. The performing arts add another string to the bow of the broad range of activities on offer to all youth at Scouts. Singing, dancing and acting, citizenship, environment and the outdoor pursuits of gliding, rock climbing, caving, diving, plus many others help develop the whole person. All of this while learning new skills and building life long friendships.
With a history dating back to 1961, there is much hype from both old and new followers of AGS regarding this 50th production in 2010.
Production Director Darran Swain, himself a Gang Show veteran of 36 years was excited about the 50th show. “ We pride ourselves on putting on a great evening of family entertainment. Even in the back row of the theatre you can’t help but feel the fun, energy and pride these young people have performing on stage. I really enjoy watching young people grow in confidence as they perform each year, some that started when they were 10 are now writing and producing material for the Show.”
