Welcome to the Middlesbrough Scouts Gang Show in the Little Theatre, on behalf of the East and West Middlesbrough Scout Districts.
In the past few years I have had the privilege of leading the Show's Production Team, but now, as Chairman, I have a much wider view of the work involved in getting the "Show on the Road". The Business Team and Executive Committee have such an important task in backing up the efforts of the "Gang". What a wonderful spirit there is in producing a Gang Show.Irwin Greenwood, the President of the Show, suffered a stroke last Autumn. He is making good progress and we wish him a speedy recovery. Of course, many will remember Irwin as the Show's Producer in the 50's, 60's and 70's.
Frank Sterrett, the Stage Manager, has intimated that this will be his last Show. We shall be sad to see him retire as he has done a wonderful job Back Stage for many years. Happy retirement Frank.
Grateful thanks and best wishes then to the Cast, Production Team, Business Team, Sponsors, Supporters and everyone connected with the Show. I know the Show will be a resounding success, all thanks to your efforts.
To you, the audience, thank you for being with us and I hope you enjoy watching the Show as much as the "Gang" enjoy performing it for you.
Frank G. Holliday
