Our History

Scout Shows originally began back in 1932 in London with Ralph Reader CBE creating the very first Gang Show, at the request of Lord Baden Powell. It was a popular creation and soon Gang Shows began all over the world with the Brisbane Gang Show the first in Australia starting in 1952 and then Melbourne Gang Show in 1953. Strzelecki Showtime was started with the help of Melbourne Gang Show in 1969 and has been running annually ever since.

Originally Strzelecki Showtime took the form of the original Gang Shows by running a review style show. Over the years we have evolved and now we perform our own totally brand new original full musical production every year. This year we are celebrating 54 years of Strzelecki Showtime.
