About Whitehorse Showtime

Scouts and Guides Performing the Finale 2019

Whitehorse Showtime is a theatrical experience performed every year by over 100 Scouts and Guides in Victoria, Australia. Starting out in 1965, Rod Savage OAM organised the very first Whitehorse Showtime which was performed at the Box Hill Town Hall. Since then, it has become an annual tradition that showcases the talents of young performers from all around the region.

With almost 60 consecutive seasons, Whitehorse Showtime continues to provide quality performing arts training to Scouting and Guiding youth. We pride ourselves on giving everyone a go and encourage every member to do their best.

“When all is said and done, we’ve had a lot of fun, that nobody can ever take away.”

Our Badge and Scarf

With the inception of Whitehorse Showtime in 1965, it was decided that the team should have a scarf of its own. The colour was similar to the one used on the badge from the 7th Australian Jamboree held at Dandenong in 1964/65.

Team members from the first show were asked to submit designs, and the one finally selected came from Ric Butler of 16th Box Hill Senior Scouts. It incorporates the White Horse, traditionally connected with Box Hill through the old White Horse Inn, and a pair of Theatre trumpets to complete the theme. Additional artwork was done by Richard Godden who prepared the final drawings.
