Transition Program

Sunraysia Gang Show values the development of our Junior Cast members and understands that the change from Junior Cast to Senior Cast can be a large jump. We have developed a transition program to assist with seamless transition from Junior Cast to Senior Cast.

The transition program is offered to all Cub Scouts and Girl Guides who are 10YO by 30/04/2023.

The cast involved in the transition program will commence rehearsals from our first junior cast rehearsal date. They will then attend rehearsals each week on a Tuesday night from 6.30 until 8pm. Towards the end of the rehearsal season it may be required for the transition cast to attend the full rehearsal time frame (6.30-9pm), however the need for this will be kept to a minimum.

The aim of the program is to allow an increased participation in the show. Our transition program cast will be involved in the opening act, junior cast item and first act finale.

The cost for Junior Cast Transition membership for 2023 is $40 each and includes a souvenir Show DVD/USB.

You can contact our Junior Cast Coordinator (Maree Whitehead) if you have any questions or our Production Director (Zach Stanbrough).

We are excited to grow this program and support our cast as they transition from Junior Cast into our Senior Cast.
