Scouts and guides from across the county will be taking to the stage in Cheltenham for The Gloucester Gang Show.

Youngsters will be performing at The Bacon Theatre in Dean Close School from Tuesday through to Saturday.

The variety show will see the Gloucester District youngsters sing, dance and act throughout the performance.

Producer Lisa Oliveri said: “The Gloucester Gang Show has been going strong for over half a century now, and continue to bring fantastic performances to you year on year.

“The show aims to give young people an experience of all aspects of performance, from song and dance to comedy and tragedy.

“This process has proven to be exceptional at helping young people to develop their confidence, self-belief, inter-personal relationships, social skills, commitment and sense of community, not to mention their performance skills.

“Programmes like this are of great benefit to young people, and of course also to the many adults they still have riding along on the Crest of a Wave.”

Money from the show will help pay for a new roof needed for the Gloucester District Scout Headquarters, where the gang rehearse.

Lisa, who started out in the show’s cast in 1996, added: “Seeing what the youngsters, and well, also the adults get out of the show, is so rewarding and overwhelming.”

Tickets cost between £6.50 and £8.50 and are available from the Box Office on 01452 304024.
