Cumberland Gang Show’s first show was in 1970 and this year, we proudly present our 50th Show with a spectacular new stage show by the Scouts and Guides of Western Sydney, performing at The Riverside Theatres Parramatta from the 12-20 July 2019 during the school holidays.
In this year’s show 50 YEARS TOGETHER, more than 180 Scouts and Guides aged seven to adult will perform two hours of live, fast-moving, musical comedy theatre. It's packed with loads of fun, fantastic sets and costumes and is perfect family entertainment full of singing, dancing and comedy. There’s even live music from a 20 piece orchestra and a special appearance from our “Legends” cast who return to the stage.
There are over 2000 costumes and around 25 complete set changes every year! Cumberland Gang Show takes over 5000 person-hours of cast rehearsals from March to July, plus over 8000 hours of set, costume and technical preparation to give you an indication of just how well this show is produced.
This year will again include the “Comet” cast comprising Joey and Junior Guides aged seven-nine years old who have the opportunity to join the other cast members on stage.
