We have an amazing show for you!  There is music, dance and comedy by the talented Scouts & Guides of Western Sydney with a live 24 piece orchestra playing a bunch of brand new catchy songs mixed with popular ones you’re going to love. There is a show full of great items with over 2000 costumes – including a stunning opening number called “Together Again” which is a brand new modern song written especially for the 50th show. Then we have five musical mini-stories including “Amazing Science”, where the nerds rule as we make science fun and get to sing some great catchy songs; “Heroes” which is a crazy story about life as a superhero; “Dance Evolution” is an opportunity to show its time to dance;  “Greatest Show”, where we get to do some circus stuff to finish the 1st act!; and “Dragons Fire & Ice” where we hear a fantasy bedtime story about vikings & dragons which is just amazing.  But that’s not all, we have a tribute to Queen called “Somebody to Rock You” to build the show to a great end. Then there are the tabs numbers – “Getting Over”, what happens when an old man tries to get over a gate; and “My Best Mates”, a great Gang Show classic for the senior girls.  But the boys don’t miss out, they get to do “Robin Hood & his Merry Men” which is a huge laugh, a great sketch and a very funny song. One of the highlights of the show is when the Comets get to perform their very own special song in the middle of the first act, called “Everywhere’s a Dance Floor”.  It will be awesome! And the Legends get a special item too, called “It’s the Moments” in the second act, written especially for them. And if that’s not enough, we have a really modern medley of contemporary popular songs which we’ve called “Tonight Only” and a heap of funny moments planned throughout the show that will have you rolling in the aisles.  And just in case you were wondering, there is fabulous new finale song called “I’m One of the Gang” which is a special 50th song that I’m sure you’re just going to love. So, there you have it – it’s a huge show!  A fabulous musical score, more laughs than you’ve had in a month of sundays, catchy tunes that you’ll be singing forever and an awe-inspiring cast that can’t wait to show the audience what happens when they get “together again”.
