Stride On 2017 @Thameside Theatre
Wednesday, 22 March 2017 – 7:15pm to Saturday, 25 March 2017 – 7:15pm
Thurrock Scout and Guide Gang Show are celebrating their 50th year, and bringing Stride On 2017 to the Thameside Theatre from 22 March to 25 March 2017. The show is brought to you by Scouts and Guides from across Thurrock for their 50th annual show since 1968.
The Show is directed by Jan Thurnell, who is officially the longest serving Gang Show Director in the world. Gang Show is a great opportunity for the youngsters to perform in front of a live audience, which they do with a high degree of professionalism, doing both themselves and their leaders proud.
“Stride On” contains a good mixture of glamorous traditional and modern musical numbers carefully entwined with some comedy sketches, giving a nice balance of humour, whilst retaining a traditional core of Ralph Reader elements. Reader was the actor, theatrical producer and songwriter who is best known for starting the Gang Show tradition in 1931.
The show runs nightly, starting at 7:15pm, with an additional matinee performance on the Saturday, which commences at 2:15pm.
A number of tickets are held by Tracey Clay please call 01375 378 863.
