Well here we are again with yet another show but this year it is
something special for we are celebrating "50 Years of Gang
Show at this Theatre". Yes our first show here was in 1958
when we put on a revue called "We'll Live Forever", and we
still have a couple of stalwarts involved with this show who
made their debut in 1958 and that is myself and our Stage
Manager Fred Gettings.
The principle of Gang Show hasn't changed at all but the
content of the shows certainly have, originally the content had
to be all Ralph Reader numbers while nowadays we only have
to include a percentage of numbers by the Gang Show founder
hence we can now include such items as Time Travel and
Cruising the World, whilst also remembering some of the old
numbers we have done in the past.
Once again the gang and all those other people who assist with
putting on the show have been busy rehearsing since before
Christmas, and it is now time for you to see the results of all
My thanks and appreciation go to all those people who have
been involved in anyway at all especially to the cast members
who can now reap the benefits of all their hard work by
enjoying their moment on stage, so sit back and enjoy yourself
you will be thoroughly entertained I'm sure as we raise the
curtain on "Gang Show 2008".
