The Hornsby Gang Show has trained thousands of Scouts and Guides in all aspects of stagecraft, acting, singing, dancing and many behind the scene jobs and skills eg. lighting, sound, prop-building and dozens of others. As well as performing skills, the Gang Show aims to develop young people’s confidence and self-esteem. But above all, everyone has fun and a great time!
