Let Hornsby Gang Show put a smile on your dial this year!

Want to work backstage?

Hornsby Gang Show can provide great opportunities to get involved and learn on the job about all aspects of what goes on behind the scenes. Have you ever been interested in working backstage or in a technical department for theatre sound and lighting? Applications are still open. You need to be over 15 years old. 
Email: to find out more. Many former crew members have used this as a way to obtain experience that has led to them to be able to take up further training and work in the theatre and music industries.

General Information about Hornsby Gang Show

Hornsby Gang Show brings out the hidden talents of young Scouts and Guides and creates opportunities for the development of confidence, leadership and imagination. Each year new cast members and crew join in …. some nervous…. some already full of passion and creativity. Many come back each year and take up new roles, expand their experiences and become better leaders. 

Hornsby Gang creates opportunities for everyone to:

-       learn how to be part of a large team,

-       be leaders

-       learn new technical, production, script writing, choreography, dance, music and acting skills. 

This creativity ensures we can create a brilliant new show every year.

Hornsby Gang Show has trained hundreds of Scouts and Guides in more than the aspects of stagecraft since its inception in the 1970s. Gang Show develops the confidence and self-esteem of young people as well as leadership and creativity as they work together to develop and deliver over a week of performances every July. Whether they are on stage, working behind the scenes or developing the show, everyone is an integral part of this amazing team. There are over 100 members in the cast and over 200 crew behind the scene in support departments including production, technical, backstage, set design, catering, wardrobe, personnel and management.

Each year Hornsby Gang Show brings together members of Scouting and Guiding of all ages and from across the Region to provide music, comedy and dance to the whole community. From February, until the performances in the July school holidays, they rehearse and learn new sketches, songs, routines and dances. The material in the show is a result of a group of Scouting and Guiding members who meet each year as a Creative Team, from August until January to write music, songs and items, arrange the music, design a show and choreograph the movement and dance.

The “behind the scenes" teams start meeting in February as well - constructing, planning and marketing the show. Some roles need experience but often this is a great opportunity to learn stage management lighting, sound and prop building skills

Who can be involved?

Hornsby Gang Show is open to all members of Sydney North Region Scouts, Venturers, Rovers and Leaders and Guides of corresponding ages. To be a cast member you must be at least 11 years of age by opening night (early July) of the performance year and be a registered, active member of your Scout or Guide section. The cast, who all have to be current active members in Scouting and Guiding are required to be fully involved in their local activities as well as attending rehearsals every week. Scouting and Guiding activities take priority.

Support departments are open to all members of the Scout Movement and Guide Association, as well as family and friends.
