Taster Day 2019

Taster Day 2019.pngOn Sunday 1st of December, we will be running a taster session at Kingsdown School, before rehearsals start for our upcoming show at the Wyvern theatre in May 2020.

Anyone who wants to be in the show or is interested in finding out what gangshow is all about should head to our taster session to see what it’s all about. If you have a spare hour, come along and see what all the fuss is about.

The taster session is open to cubs and brownies and older, but be aware that our main show is open to members of Swindon North & Ridgeway Scouting Districts and Wiltshire North Guiding County who will be8 or older by the time of the show in May 2020.  

Register for the taster day here.

Everyone is invited to our main session from 2:30 – 3:30pm, where we’ll start with some warm ups and then move on to learning some singing and movement to one of the songs from our upcoming show.

We will also be running optional 20 minute showcase slots before and after the main session for you to show off your talents that we can use in the show. Take the opportunity to let us know how well you sing, show off a prepared dance routine or demo your acting skills.

Register for the taster day here.

If you can’t make the taster day and still want to get info about our next show, you can still fill in the form – just select the appropriate option!

Full details on the rehearsal schedule are available on dates page.

The choir is open to all members of Swindon North or Ridgeway Scout Districts and Wiltshire North Guides who are 7 years or older.

You do not have to have been involved in Gangshow in the past, if you want to sing then come along!

When is it?

The choir will be rehearsing at All Saint Church Hall next to Ferndale School on:

  • Wednesday 4th December 7-8:30pm

  • Wednesday 18th December 7-8.30pm

The concert will be at Swindon Academy on Beech Avenue.

  • Friday 20th December 6:45-9pm.

Our young people are interested, so we need to send leaders?

NO!!!!

It would be fantastic if your whole group showed up with leaders in tow, but its not required. If you have young people interested in taking part then they will be looked after by the production team as well as the Scout and Guide leaders in the choir.

Anything else I need to know?

We’re asking the choir to provide their own outfit for the performance that consists of:

  • A plain black t-shirt, shirt or top
  • Dark (preferable black) trousers or leggings
  • Dark footwear

Gangshow will be providing a sparkly Necker to complete the outfit.

There is no cost for you to be part of the Choir. In order to cover the costs and raise some money for the Gangshow, we do need lots of people to come along and watch so let everyone know your going to be on stage and get lots of people along to watch!

Sounds great, how to I sign up?

Fill in the online form and we’ll see you at rehearsals!

To tie in with this, and because of the excellent work they do, we are pleased to announce that our 2018 supported charity is Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
