National Gang Show 2022

Tynemouth Gang Show have been asked to seek an expression of interest for any cast or crew that would like to take part in the National Gang Show 2022, which will be made up of members of all of the UK Gang Shows to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Gang Show. It is hoped that the performance will be in a London theatre at some point in the spring/summer of 2022 and that the rehearsals will be over two or three weekends.

The GS90 Gang

This will be the fourth in a series of shows marking the 60th, 70th, 80th and now 90th Anniversary of the first London Gang Show in 1932.  The first two shows were performed at the Wimbledon Theatre, London and GS80 at the Birmingham Hippodrome. They drew a cast from shows all around the country. 

In 2012 some 30 shows took part with a cast of about 150. 

For GS90 we are looking for Gang members who will be aged between 14 and 25 in spring/summer 2022 (exact date to be confirmed).

In 2022 it would be great if every Gang Show in the UK could be part of the show.  Please complete the attached questionnaire to let us have your thoughts and whether you may have Gang members who would be interested.  We will not be looking at recruiting cast until the middle of 2021 but want an idea in principle of interest.  We are certainly not looking for names or a firm commitment at this time.

If you (or your Son/Daughter) are interested, please can you contact us via email with the following information:

1. Name:

2. Age during the spring/summer of 2022:

3. Please indicate if you would like to join either the cast or crew:

Recruitment to the Team

To help us plan the event we are now looking to expand the teams.  This will be the first of a couple of open calls as we build towards the event. Attached is series of paragraphs setting out a brief description of the roles that we are looking to fill at the moment.  We are keen to have a spread of people from different shows around the country.

Could you publicise this to members of your team and encourage appropriate people to apply.   They should be members of either the Scout or Guide movement, have good ideas and not be afraid to express an opinion!

To apply could we ask that you email for the application form by Friday 12th June 2020.

If you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to get in contact!
