Hedge End gang show is back with big plans for their return to the scouting stage with their ‘Best of British’ production which will hit the stage in February 2016.
The show has been providing creative activities for scouts in and around the Itchen district for over half a century having celebrated its 50th birthday in 2013.
After a few years away, the gang show is back with huge plans for their new production featuring the very best of British music, comedy and variety from yester-year through to yesterday.
In 2013, Hedge End Gang Show entered the ‘Bright Sparks’ singing competition and were chosen to perform vocals on a ‘Project Christmas’ album which was professionally recorded and released on an international scale.
In October, Hedge End Gang Show commenced their revival by uniting with other Scout shows from across Hampshire to perform in ‘Hampshire Scouts Present’ at the Winchester Guildhall, now, nearly 5 months of hard work later, their own district show is almost ready.
With a new show comes a new Producer with Kevin Harmer taking the helm.
“This show is a tribute to our great country, brought to you through comedy, song and dance. All the music in the show has been written or performed by British artists. In 2016 we celebrate the 90th birthday of the longest running monarch, we also celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouts. Four years ago we were preparing for the Olympic Games and 50 years ago the Beatles did their last tour together. We celebrate all these events and more in the show”
Hedge End Gang Show takes to the stage on 19 and 20February at Wyvern Technical College, with a matinee performance on Saturday 20. Tickets are £7 for children and £9 for adults and are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/hedgeendgangshow or ‘Thoughts’ card shop in Hedge End Village.
