Keen to start on 'Gang Show'

After more than 30 years of producing Scouting Otago's Gang Shows, Noel and Sue Walker say they are just as enthusiastic about this year's show as they were their first.

Auditions are about to begin for Scouting Otago's 29th Gang Show, and as always, the theme remains top secret until opening night.

This is Mr and Mrs Walker's 17th show.

They have been running the shows every second year since 1980, and cannot wait to get started, Mrs Walker said.

''It never gets dull and boring, because you get a new cast and new material every time. It keeps it fresh.

''We just really love it. We enjoy seeing the young members grow and develop their theatrical skills.''

She said auditions for this year's show would be held at scouting venues around Dunedin from February 17 to 21, and they were looking for a cast of up to 80 people, aged 10 and over, from Scouting and Guides organisations in Otago.

''This will be a non-stop, fast-moving, modern musical and comedy revue consisting of more than 20 different items ranging from old favourites to brand new items, with something to appeal to everyone.''

Mrs Walker said the show would include a live orchestra, and great costumes and scenery.

Performances would be held nightly at 7.30pm from July 16-20, with a 2pm matinee on July 20.
