Hobart Gang Show


Founded in 1956, Hobart Gang Show aims to give young people in Scouting and Guiding the opportunity to develop performance skills and perform in a close to professional theatrical environment.

Reaching its 45th season in 2022, Hobart Gang Show is written and performed by Scouts and Guides from around Hobart. They even get opportunities to direct!

Hobart Gang Show 2022:
Lights, Camera, Action!

From silent film shenanigans to weld class superheros, relive the golden age of cinema!
Youth members from Scouts and Guides of Hobart and surrounding areas are looking forward to taking you on a fun filled journey for their annual production. Young people aged from 11 may be involved with writing the script, music and songs, do choreography, assist with directing the show as well as perform in it or work backstage. All members are volunteers with the cast and crew being made up primarily of youth members of Scouts and Guides.The show will be loads of fun, packed with sensational sets, colourful costumes and will showcase the amazing talent of the youth of Scouting and Guiding.

The performing arts in general have been struck hard by Covid-19 as it affects cast numbers, rehearsals as well as audience numbers and so we need your support more than ever to ensure Hobart Gang Show can continue training the youth of Scouting and Guiding in all areas of the performing arts, for many years to come. Please book your tickets and tell others.

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! is an original script written by Hobart Gang Show members and will be performed at Hobart College, Mt. Nelson Theatre. This show has so much to offer with sets, lighting, costumes, skits, songs and choreography brought to you by THE GANG.
