The Crew

The Crew at workBrisbane Gang Show's crew form an integral part in bringing the show together. This year, we have 157 crew supporting backstage, lighting, sound, front of house, costuming, props, catering and more.

They give countless hours of their own time to make the show brilliant. Our crew often include past cast members who have passed the 30 year maximum age limit. Some have been with us for more than 40 years, and are recognised in the naming system for Cast patrols.
