Hi Everyone.

Once again Gangshow is up and running for another year. Gangshow is for all youths registered in either joeys,cubs,scouts,venturers,rovers,leaders and guides. This is my 4th year in Gangshow, but 1st in the senior cast. Auditions were in february. Rehersal are now underway as everybody have been put into patrols. My patrol name is Kermit. Rehersal are held on a tuesday night and some weekends at the Nichols Point Hall. The differnce between junior and senior cast is, junior cast do 2 performances and  is for 7-10yrs and senior cast do about 9 performances each and is for 10yrs+. The things i enjoy about Gangshow are, catching up with other troop friends, new friends, dancing, singing and building my confiedence. So far we have learnt 2 acts and the songs that go with that act, it is realy enjoyable learning dances to my favourite songs.
More news to come from other members of Irymple who are involved.
