Since 1969, our show has given thousands of young Scouts and Girl Guides the opportunity to perform on stage and provide wonderful entertainment to our audiences.
‘From humble beginnings, the show grew to be something grand’
Our Gang Show began in Ryde in 1969 when 'Rip' Butler produced his first group show with a cast of 40. This grew to a full Gang Show in 1970 when "Ryde Gang Show" played at Ryde High School Auditorium. Cumberland 'earned its badge' as Ryde Gang Show in 1971.
In 1972, Guides joined the cast for the first time. The Gang outgrew Ryde and moved to Marsden High School. In 1975, we became known as Cumberland Gang Show as cast were drawn from across the then ‘Cumberland Area', now Greater Western Sydney Region.
From there, Cumberland Gang Show grew. We have established ourselves as an organisation with a reputation: a long term performing arts training medium for Scouts and Guides. We are renowned for providing quality entertainment.
Join us in celebrating our history as we recognise the contributions of those who made our show what it is today.
We are organising commemorative events to celebrate the 50th year of Cumberland Gang Show, including all Gang members, past and present.
Stay tuned for more information about our calendar of events and how you can join us in celebrating.
