scoutAndy's Gang Show Pageguide

necker I first joined the gangshow in 1976 as a 12 year old scout after reading an advert in the local paper and much badgering off my mother I went to the auditions at Eleaner St school and was accepted. After quite a few weeks of rehearsals the show went to the Cleethorpes Pier (now Pier 39 night club), we had our dress rehearsal on the Sunday and the first performance on the Monday `which was OAP's night, we then went through  to Saturday were we had a matinee in the afternoon followed by a break for tea and some time spent in Wonder Land ( also alas no-more ) "you didn't half get some funny looks if you don't get all your makeup off" and then a night performance.

1977 In those days the gangshow uniform was for the boys all white shorts, socks, plimsoles and t-shirts and white tennis skirts for the girls. The cast list for that year was very much more boys than girls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Pier closed down The show moved to the Central Hall in Duncolm St Grimsby and the following year it moved again to the Memorial hall Cleethorpes were it remained up to 1992 when moved to the Ice House Christian center for 3 years, We then moved to the new Grimsby Auditorium ( the acoustics are better in the entrance than they are on stage ) Where we have remained.

1999 The cast now contains more girls than boys although most of them are in the Scout with Guides adding a good balance in the Show. The show remains as always a variety show taking it material from the popular shows as well as the London variety show and the royal gala.
