Canberra Gang Show is a great night out at the theatre. It's also an amazing training opportunity for around 200 young people of the Canberra Region!
Canberra Gang Show is produced annually by a team of volunteers from the Scouting and Guiding communities.
2014 will be 47 years since the first Canberra Gang Show!! After first stepping into the spotlight in 1966 with the assistance of Melbourne Gang Show, in 1968 we went it alone and haven't slowed down since. Over our colourful history, we have only performed in 3 different venues; The Canberra Theatre between 1966 and 1974, the Playhouse until 1982 and Erindale Theatre up tol 2013 when we moved to the Tim Murray Theatre.
In 2014 Canberra Gang Show will feature an original script written by the Production & Creative Team.
Our 2014 performance season is staged in the July school holidays.
