Scouts getting ready for The Gang Show

SCOUTS and Guides from across Thurrock have been rehearsing every Sunday since the beginning of October,and are ready to tread the boards at the Thameside Theatre with their traditional annual “Stride On” Gang Show, which they first staged in 1968.

It is an opportunity for the youngsters perform in front of a live audience, which they do with a high degree of professionalism, under the guidance of the show’s Director Jan Thurnell, who is officially the longest serving Gang Show Director in the world, doing both themselves and their leaders proud!

This year’s cast numbering some sixty odd members are supported by a similar number behind the scenes, to deliver a show containing a great mixture of glamorous traditional and modern musical numbers, entwined with some comedy sketches giving a nice balance of humour, retaining the traditional core of Ralph Reader elements.

Stride On 2013 will run from 24th to 27th April 2013. Tickets are available from Tracey Clay on 01375 378863 For more details about the show please visit
