Comedy Capers Gang Show is a non profit performing arts group proudly associated as part of Scouts Australia (SA Branch) and is currently in its 55th consecutive year of production.
Our group is a pioneer of Northern area theatrical variety show offering live music, singing, acting and dance performed by the youth members of Scouts Australia (SA Branch) and Girl Guides SA. Our mission is to promote the aims, principals, goals and values of scouting through the arts.
“The aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as a member of their local, national and international communities.”
Our Mission: Our mission is to use performing arts to instil the principles of Scouting in young people, so helping them to become more confident, capable and valued citizens, to give an enriched and rewarding performing arts experience and to enhance the reputation of Scouting within the membership and amongst the broader community.
Our Vision: To develop a vibrant scouting arts community and bring people together for powerful shared experiences that inspire a creative exchange of ideas.
The show is produced and directed by volunteer adult members from each of the participating associations and performed over a two week period after a fifteen week rehearsal schedule. The show is supported by an additional compliment of some one hundred and forty Scouting leaders and volunteers fulfilling such positions of band, technical, set construction and administrative roles.
The show uses an assortment of original and commercial music played by our live band along with sketch and dialogue written by other participating national shows and also within our own members.
