Be prepared to enjoy Ipswich Gang Show

Ipswich Gang Show 2011, The Great School Theatre, Ivry Street, to April 16

TOE-tapping tunes, dazzling dance numbers and lots to laugh at; these Scouts and Guides are always prepared to entertain.

It was a shame more people didn’t take up the company’s invitation to enjoy the dress rehearsal before the show’s official opening tonight. When word spreads how good it is they may have trouble getting tickets.

Being the last dry run there were a few hiccups, but nothing serious and nothing that won’t be all right on the night.

The cast were vocally strong, in some cases exceptional. The rendition of What A Wonderful World stands out in my mind.

You may also want to watch:

Members of all ages really threw themselves into the dancing and The War of the Worlds routine was cleverly choreographed and staged.

Comedy-wise, Richard Stilgoe’s WI Calendar Girls, the Radio Ham, A Word from our Sponsors and Amazing Memory Man skits worked very well.
