The Gang is back for another fun packed show here at Middlesbrough Theatre.
Gang Show 2018 has been in rehearsal since before Christmas and the cast
young and old have worked extremely hard with your enjoyment at the
forefront of their minds. This year we have 85 members of cast with the
largest proportion of youngsters that we have had for a long time.|
Middlesbrough Gang Show prides itself on our ideal of never turning anyone
away who wishes to take part in the show no matter what ability they may
or may not have. All we ask for is commitment and then our dedicated team
of production staff as well as business and support staff will ensure that they
will play an active part and perform to the best of their ability.
All of the above teams are volunteers and give up many hours of their time
to ensure that the show meets the high standards that have been laid down
over many years and we give a big thank you to all of them.|
We also give our sincere thanks to David Lindsey the Theatre Manager and
his staff front and back stage, who give us lots of help and advice.
All we ask from you is to relax and enjoy the show and please show your
enjoyment in the usual way, this gives the youngsters, especially, a lot
of encouragement and feeling of pride.
I'd like to start by welcoming everyone to Middlesbrough Gang Show 2018 !|
I've been a part of the Middlesbrough Gang Show for the past 8 shows,
but this is my first as Middlesbrough District Commissioner and I am
so incredibly proud to be associated with such an amazing show.
It's great to see lots of new faces young and old who have joined the
'Gang' for the first time this show and also it's great to see so many
returning cast members.|
Everyone, from the cast you see on stage, to the people behind the
scenes, have all worked incredibly hard to put together an outstanding
show that I'm sure is going to leave you with a huge smile on your face.
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone from the cast, crew and
you, our paying audience, who have worked so hard to ensure that funds
have been raised to be able to put on a fantastic show of such a high standard.
Thank you to every one of you for coming to support us.
Rebecca Hole - Middlesbrough District Commissioner
The Middlesbrough Gang Show Team have once again produced and
excellent programme for our entertainment. This would not have been
possible without a tremendous amount of hard work.|
Thank you to members of the cast for your dedication to the schedule
of rehearsals. Thanks also to the backstage team for all the time you
have contributed to make scenery, props and costumes.
The show is a remarkable achievement and shows us all what is possible with teamwork.
Many congratulations and well done everybody.|
David Clark - Cleveland County Commissioner

Its Gang Show time again!|
One of the strands of the current strategic plan of The Scout Association is
Community Involvement and what better way than a Gang Show to involve the community!
We have first of all, the involvement and commitment of the parents of all the young people in
the Show who, rather than just ferrying them to a weekly meeting, dropping off and picking up,
are becoming more involved to a greater depth and get to see more of Scouting life.
Then we have the audience, which will include many people who have not been involved in Scouting
for a long time, or not at all, but come along to support the Show because they know someone
in it or because they are a follower of Gang Shows.
Finally we have Middlesbrough Theatre and its brilliant staff, a pinnacle of the local community,
who allow us to put on our Show every two years. Again, for some, this may be their first connection
5o, it can clearly be seen that Middlesbrough Gang Show is very much involved in the local community,
along with all the Patrons of the Show and companies who sponsor it.
Have a great time everyone, thanks for coming and please spread the message about Scouting
giving its members skills for life!
