We hope you have fond memories of experiencing being on stage for Gang Show 2016. We have had some really positive feedback from the last show and are very proud of you all.
The new Show is ready. We are planning to do some exciting and challenging stuff, and we want you to come back and join us.
We will, also, be going around and visiting all kinds of groups: Cub and Brownie packs, Scouts, Guides and Explorers to promote the Show and get new people to join in too.
The 2017 Shows will take place at St Francis College Theatre, on Friday 31st March (7:30pm), and Saturday 1st April (2:00pm and 7:30pm)
We will have at least two full dress rehearsals, on Sunday 26th March (2.00pm) and Wednesday 29th March (6.30pm).
It is essential for all cast members to attend the dress rehearsals and all Shows.
Rehearsals, as usual, will be held at 1st Baldock Scout HQ in Park Drive, Baldock
All Scouting and Guiding members are welcome… just turn up with your completed Permission form.
Cubs and Brownies who will move up to Scouts and Guides before the Show dates must attend the later rehearsal time.
If you want to bring your own drinks and snacks, please do so, but, No nuts or fizzy drinks.
There is an annual show fee of £10 per cast member, and, £5 for each additional sibling.The show fee MUST be paid by the end of November 2015
This fee will help cover the rising costs of producing Gang Show; theatre hire, rehearsal facilities, costumes and it will, also, help to improve the sound, lighting and staging of each show, so, that we can continue to deliver a high quality production.
You can wear last year’s T-shirt if it still fits you, and, you should continue to wear your first-year’s neckerchief and woggle.
Don’t worry if you need replacements, they can be ordered for you.
Gill and the Costume team are already busy with the sewing machines
All the information you need will be passed on at rehearsals and via email. You can also get the information on the main and mobile websites
We will have a cast scrap book at rehearsals for your comments and ideas and selected items will be posted onto the web site (without your name)
We will require parent help, either, at rehearsals or once we get to St. Francis Theatre.
If you are able to help, even if it is only on one or two occasions, then please let us know on a permission form, as all adults who help us will need to complete an Enhanced clearance form prior to helping us.
I hope you all understand that this is not only for the benefit of your children, but, for yourselves as well.
We would also appreciate any help making scenery, costumes and with front of house and crew. Don’t worry if you volunteer, we will not ask you to become any more involved than you want to.
