WHAT? Men in drag?

Curtains will soon be rising for the annual spectacular Gang Show.

After months of preparation the countdown is beginning for the all-singing all-dancing variety extravaganza which always goes down a treat with the audience.

Performed by a cast 100 plus – including scouts, guides and adult leaders across Suffolk – it provides great entertainment for the whole family.

This year you'll even get a chance to see men in mini's singing the Geri Halliwell's hit "It's Raining Men."

And the 2002 Ipswich Gang Show at the Corn Exchange from April 3 to 6 promises to be even better than ever.

Maggie Warton, publicity officer, said: "This is our one for the Jubilee year.

"There will be singing, dancing, sketches and a drag scene. It will great fun but I don't want to give too much away.

"It also celebrates 30 years since we were presented with the Red Scarf which on you get if you are up to a certain standard."

The first Ipswich Show took place in 1938. In fact the director Roy Goody, – who has been in the Scout movement for a staggering 72 years – was in the very first one.

Get ready to enjoy a fantastic night of entertainment.

The evening show starts at 7.15 pm, with a Saturday afternoon performance for senior citizens at 2.15 pm. For tickets contact the Corn Exchange Box Office on Ipswich 433100.
