What is Canberra Gang Show?
Canberra Gang Show (CGS) is an annual theatre production and is part of the Guide and Scout program in the ACT and surrounding region. It provides an opportunity for learning, developing and sharing theatrical skills, both on stage and behind the scenes. CGS has three goals for every member of Gang - to have fun, for each person to learn, and to put on a good show.
