Darling Downs Region Performing Arts


The Darling Downs Scout Region Performing Arts Team conduct various activities throughout the year, with a focus of on stage training and performances. The major activity throughout the year is the Darling Downs Revue which is a two theatrical performance.

We also conduct yearly disco/karaoke nights for the different Scout sections, a Carols by the Campfire and also do a couple of public performances on Australia Day and Queensland Day.

Have a look below for more information on the various activities.

Our Revue is based on traditional Gang Show concepts and started as a result of a visit to Toowoomba by the Brisbane Gang Show. Our first show was held at Harristown State High School Hall in 1991 with a cast of 35. It continued each year till 2001 when the Toowoomba City Hall (our performance venue) closed. We restarted in 2005 performing at Highfields Cultral Centre for the next nine years. In 2014 we changed venues and came back into Toowoomba performing at the new Heritage Bank Auditorium at the Empire Theatre. This year we will be performing at the USQ Arts Theatre.

“Darling Downs Revue is a feature packed two hour theatrical variety performance full of songs, dance and drama suitable for the whole family!”

Studio 44

An Original Script by Darling Downs Revue

Studio 44 explores a full day inside a television studio. Come be a part of the ‘live studio audience’ and witness a full day of TV programming in just 140min!
First you’ll wake up with a classic morning talk show and a quirky children’s show, before jumping into a mid-day soap opera and cooking show.
Then you’ll laugh your way through an exercise and game show, before getting your news and talent show fix – only to finish wide awake following a “horror movie” you’re not likely to forget!
Perfect for any self-confessed TV addict, this variety show (Revue) will have you tapping along with a great mix of songs, wonderful dance pieces and loads of skits to make you laugh out loud!

Performed by the Girl Guides and Scouts of the Darling Downs Region.
