Gang Show is a theatrical production put on by Scouts and Guides. A Gang Show includes a series of items involving singing, dancing, and acting using a revue format. Cast sizes range from 50 to 150 (depending on the Show) and involve both youth and adults.
Gang Shows originated in London in 1932, and came to New Zealand in the 1950s.

- Waikato (even years)
- Manawatu (odd years)
- Hutt Valley (even years)
- Christchurch (odd years)
- Otago (odd years)

Due to COVID this cycle has changed and Waikato Gang Show now performs on odd years.
