Whitehorse Showtime - Thu 29 Aug

posted 15 Jul 2019, 05:46 by Andrew Yeaman   [ updated 15 Jul 2019, 05:48 ]

Whitehorse Showtime is a theatrical experience performed by the Scouts and Guides of the Mount Dandenong Region. This year 175 enthusiastic and talented Scouts and Guides will take the stage, singing, dancing and best of all, having a lot of fun.

‘Turn the Page’ is all about storytelling. Initially set in a library, it looks at how we consume stories at different ages. The nostalgia of story time, the ‘old school’ parent, who can’t think beyond traditional words on a page and the tech savvy children with interactive devices.

The second act takes a different turn as the audience is taken to our future world, where the Screen Saviours, led by ‘The Moderator’ convince followers to consume content purely through screens. Siblings Charli and Bailey, fed up with the uninspiring, repetitive television they are being asked to produce attempt to resurrect live entertainment, enlisting the help of a ragtag troop of performers to create their Romeo & Juliet ‘song story’.

With an array of catchy tunes, witty humour and lively choreography this is a show for the whole family.

The cost for a ticket is $22. Payment must be made via EFT to the group account. Please include your name and Showtime as the reference for your payment. The group bank account details are as follows:
