The Greenock Gang over the Years
The first Greenock Gang Show was produced in 1942 and had a three night run on the stage of the Lady Alice School. This was only ten years after Ralph Reader produced the first Gang Show in London.
By the 1950’s, the Show was well established and was held in the current venue of the Greenock Arts Guild. These early Shows were produced by Jim Foote who produced his last Show in 1962.
In 1964, Arthur Ferguson produced his first Gang Show and continued doing so until the year 2000. During his reign of 36 years, Arthur produced nineteen Greenock Gang Shows.
In 2002, after the well earned retirement of Arthur, our current Producer, Kenny Wilson, took over as Producer.
The Greenock Gang Show is a biennial production with the next Show scheduled for 2010.
Available old Gang Show Programmes have been used to build up a Photo Album of ‘Gangs over the Years’. Also shown is a couple os sketch photos. Can anyone assist in naming the years.
