Join the Gang - On Stage

So what makes a Gang Show so unique? its quite simply the Gang itself!

Every two years West Wirral Scouts and Guides join together to create the Gang that will entertain the Wirral over 3 nights in March/April. We're just starting preparations for our 2020 show so unfortunately you can't sign up just yet.

However please feel free to read on about how you can join us later in 2019 as well as following our Facebook and Twitter Pages for the latest information.

So who can Join?

Our gang is open to all Cubs and Brownies (who are 9 years or older at the first performance of each show), to all Scouts, Guides, Explorers, Rangers, Network, Senior Section and also all Leaders within the area of West Wirral and Wallasey Scout Districts however we also welcome members from other districts across the Wirral too if we have space available.

How Much does it cost?

Although there is no "membership fee" as such, you may be asked to purchase some items of your costume.

We offer Gang Show branded souvenirs such as Hoodies and DVD's of our performances and you will of course need to travel to rehearsals in Greasby each week for about 6 months so parents should factor this in too. We also ask all cast members to sell as many tickets as they can leading up to the show, learn their song lyrics and lines of script and committ to rehearsals from December until the Show in March/April of the following year. 

If you join the final cast you'll get a songbook, CD of the music for the show as well as over 50 hours worth of free rehearsal time run by Scout and Guide leader volunteers.

Will there be Auditions?

For our 2020 show it is very likely that we will hold a few different auditions.

  • We'll hold open auditions where anyone can come along and perform whatever they like for us. Sing, Dance, play in a band, perform magic or comedy, come and show us your special talent.
  • Lead role auditions - where we are looking to cast lead acting roles or select soloists/duets etc we'll hold auditions from within the general cast.
  • Join the Gang Days - If you don't fancy taking part in our open auditions we'll also be holding join the gang days to join the enemble cast. These are fun days to get a taster for what gang show is about. After these days we'll offer places to as many people as we can. If we get more applications than places available then we'll base our descision on the activities we run during the Join in Days and Open Auditions.

I'm a leader, can I join the Gang?

Most definitely Yes!, we welcome anyone join the Gang, including leaders and helpers, you'll still need to go through the same process as the younger members of our cast but don't worry it's all part of the fun!

So how do I join?
