As you can see from the list below, we have been going since 1955 and, in all that time, we have only missed 10 years where we could not put on a production. We are proud toi say that we have never held auditions and strive to make the show accessible to every single member of Scouting and Guiding in the district.


Over the years our technical expertise has grown considerably and, today, our productions are supported by a dedicated team of back stage technicians who mix the sound from over 20 radio mikes t try and capture every word our cast are saying and singing. We also use state-of-the-art lighting effects, video projected backdrops, smoke and laser effects in order to give the children’s performances the ‘real stage’ atmosphere that they deserve. Check out our Back Stage pages if you are interested in learning more about this side of things.
