What's it all About?
Melbourne Gang Show is an annual youth musical presented by the Scouts and Guides of Melbourne.
Established in 1953, it is a training activity of Scouts Victoria and Girl Guides Victoria, providing young people with practical experiences of performance and stagecraft.
Many members of the Gang have found that the skills they learn in Gang Show lead to life-long passions in areas related to the performing arts. Some have even gone on to notable professional careers as a direct result of their involvement in the Show!
But beyond talent or technical skill, every young person in Gang Show benefits from the character-building experiences of working as part of a team, demonstrating practice and discipline, being physically active, and developing the confidence to showcase their work to an audience of thousands.
Having performed across Melbourne, around Australia and even toured overseas with our show, hundreds of thousands of audience members have experienced the joy and entertainment offered by Melbourne Gang Show—one of Melbourne's longest-running amateur theatre companies, and amongst the most successful Scout Shows in the world.
