This year’s show will include routines and numbers from Bednobs & Broomsticks, Wicked, Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book plus lots more song and dance numbers and sketches for all ages. The show’s finale will be the ever popular songs of Ralph Reader.

The Plymouth Scout and Guide Gang Show is a Plymouth Charity affiliated to Scouting and Guiding in the local areas. Any member of the scout and guide movement in and around the city can take part in the show without fear of auditions or rejection.

This additional branch of the brother and sister movements, allow our members both young and old to have this theatrical opportunity which includes six months of rehearsals and a week in a local theatre. Since it requires just a little confidence but no particular skills, it is possibly the only time that Beavers, Rainbows, Cubs, Brownies, Scouts and Guides will get this experience.

The show has been run by adult leaders of scouting and guiding for some thirty five years. During its long history it has used the Athenaeum, Globe and more recently Barbican Theatre in Plymouth. Though very much an amateur performance, it is taken most seriously by the expert adults and leaders who give their time tirelessly each year to ensure a smooth and well run programme to give the youngsters the best experience. Production, costume, props, sound and lighting along with basic choreography, singing and acting are uppermost in the minds of the committee when planning how to apportion what funds we are able to obtain from ticket sales and fund raising.
