More than 60 youngsters will take to the stage for a series of show-stopping performances.
Brownies, cubs, scouts and guides from the Deepings, Bourne and Stamford districts will perform as part of the 28th annual Deeping Gang Show.
This year’s show is called Gang Show Rocks and will feature a showcase of dancing, modern songs and sketches. The cast, which has children as young as seven up to adults in their 50s, have been rehearsing tirelessly every Sunday since September in preparation for the show.
Producer Sue Shaw, who has been involved for seven years, said it promises to be a fantastic show.
She said: “The excitement is really building in the cast now, particularly after having our first dress rehearsal.
“It is going to be a fantastic family based show. Gang shows used to be really popular but it’s not at the forefront of people’s minds nowadays so for anyone that has not been to a gang show before, I would urge them to come because they will have a great time - there’s lots of singing and clapping along.”
An army of volunteers have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to create dazzling costumes and fantastic scenery for this extravaganza - and the team are always grateful for more helpers.
Sue said she was proud to have worked with such an enthusiastic and hard working cast and crew and is looking forward to the opening night.
The show runs at The Deepings School from Wednesday, February 20, until Saturday, February 23. Performance times are 7pm each evening with a 2pm matinee on the Saturday. Tickets for Wednesday, Thursday and the Saturday matinee cost £7.50 for adults and £5 for children. All tickets on Friday and Saturday evening are £8.50.
