Hornsby Gang Show 2018


Hornsby Gang Show 2018 – is about to ‘Turn It Up!’

On the back of our sell-out shows last year, Hornsby Gang Show's production team have produced a show that is taking comedy, drama, dance and songs to the next level! Every year the show gets bigger and better and this time we have the biggest cast and our audiences are going to have the best fun.

All you need to do is to turn up and wait for us to turn up the level of fun in your lives!

The 2018 season runs for eight shows, from Friday 6 until Saturday 14 July. There are matinees on each Saturday (7 and 14 July) starting at 2pm and on Sunday 8 July starting at 3pm when you can also book in to be part of our backstage tours. Show week is at the start of the July school holidays and makes a great Scouting and Guiding activity to end the term while experiencing the passion and talents of over 120 cast.

Bookings are already open online.

Make sure you book in well before the season starts to make sure you can get the seats you want.

General Information

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 1970’s. 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, back stage, 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 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.
