Cumberland Gang Show 2021: Rise Up

Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 02 July - 10 July 2021
Category Live Event


A huge new spectacular musical variety show for 2021! With a fabulous musical score and a live orchestra, fantastic sets and costumes, amazing audio visuals and an awe-inspiring cast of more than 150 Scouts and Guides aged seven and up.

The show is full of new family-friendly material, mixed with popular songs you can tap your feet to. This year the gang plans some fun items for the audience including “Land of the Brontosaurus”, where they go back in time with David Attenborough; “Drive” which is a collage of songs about cars where we get to hear “are we there yet?”; “Friends” which is an opportunity to showcase friendship in all its forms with song and dance; “Pirate Life”, where we get to sail the seven seas with some great comedy and rollicking; “One Day in Sydney” which is a celebration of how proud we are to be Aussies; and “Scout ‘N About” where we get to see a bit of Scouting & Guiding fun.

Early Bird Discount ends Monday 21 June.

Please note this production contains smoke haze and strobe lighting effects.

Accessible Performance: 
The Saturday 10 July 2:30pm performance will be Auslan Interpreted .
