The producers & directors of the Birkenhead Gang Show spoke with a group of leaders recently and they started rehearsals in Birkenhead recently. Although they have a plan of what the Isle of Man cast members will be doing it will greatly depend on how many cast members there are. Although they could work with 2 or 3, more performers would give them much more scope. They would be in the opening and closing numbers as well.
The plan is for the director to come to the island for a weekend in December (date to finalised). Please contact Colin Brew, Janet McCabe or Gil Salway with the list of cast members or if you have any questions.
What is required:
A minimum of 2 members of each group, Cubs or Scouts, but can be more if they are keen to be part of it (Sorry no Beavers) and 2 Explorers per Unit.
6 x Backstage – leaders/network members (over 18s only)
5 x Runners – these could be Explorers (we have 1 volunteer so far)
4 x Adult Dressers – female preferably (we have 3 volunteers so far)
6 x Front of House per performance (these could be Active Support members)
6 x Make Up
4 x Chaperones (over 18s only)
This is the desired numbers, they can work with a few less and they can always find roles for more if necessary. However they would prefer to sell any extras tickets and make the audience even bigger!
Cubs or Scouts who take part in the show as cast will qualify for their Entertainer Badge, any Explorers who are in the cast will get the Performing Arts Badge.
