1st Willesborough Group 'Centenary Showtime' Gang Show
Months of preparation and rehearsals culminated in 1st Willesborough Scout Group performing “The Centenary Showtime” Gang Show.
Over 100 Young People and adults played to packed houses over two nights at the Norton Knatchbull School in Ashford. All sections, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Adult Leaders were represented and provided an evening of entertainment which had the audience up on their feet dancing, and laughing at some very corny jokes!
Some of the highlights were The Beavers on stage with a 6ft parrot, over 40 cubs “Rocking through the Decades” to songs from the 1940’s through to present day, Scouts performing the Panto Snow White in five minutes, Explorers as the Pink Ladies from “Grease”, some dodgy female Leaders masquerading as “old ladies” and a tribute to Les Miserables by the Leaders, including a solo by Scout Charlotte Hunt as Cosette.
GSL Keith White said "I am extremely proud of the Young People and Leaders of the Group for putting on such brilliant show. Everyone involved deserves a great deal of credit for their hard work and commitment. Special thanks must be reserved for co-directors Jan White and Cheryl Philip".
Special guests included His Worship the Mayor of Ashford Cllr David Smith and County Commissioner Harvey Kennett.
The show is the first event planned by the Scout Group to celebrate its Centenary Year. Scouting started in Willesborough in 1914.
