Music, comedy and dancing with Scouts and Guides
A FUN-FILLED variety show played out by more than 200 Notts youngsters will be held for the 60th time at Nottingham's Theatre Royal next week.
Scouts, Guides and their leaders will take to the stage for seven performances of music, comedy and dancing in their Gang Show.
The show will open to the sounds of the Blues Brothers as the younger cast members shake their tail feathers to get the audience tapping their feet.
It features everything from a Mr Bean sketch, songs from well-known musicals such as Oliver, Bugsy Malone and Sweet Charity and a thought-provoking number about the work of the RNLI, which is the gang's chosen charity for this show.

The youngsters have been practicing weekly since October and have each clocked up 150 hours of rehearsal time.
Holly Wildeman, 15, of Radcliffe Explorer Scouts, said: "I just can't wait for the show to begin. It's been great fun learning all of the choreography for the different numbers and learning all the words to the songs.
"We've all been rehearsing so hard and now show week is nearly here. I'm so excited it's unreal, but I'm a little bit nervous too!"
James Pidgeon, one of the show's producers, said: "I'm really proud of the cast. They've all been working really hard to put on such a fantastic showcase of their talents.
"As a volunteer it's extremely rewarding to watch the show and see the audience's reactions."
This year's main sponsors are Nottinghamshire Freemasons, New College Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University.
