Be amazed by the musical marvel of storytelling and performance that is the 2015 Victorian State Schools Spectacular
More than 3000 public school students will take the stage in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular at Hisense Arena on Saturday September 12.
With the theme, ‘What’s your story’, this three-hour show will include a Steampunk Fairground, a taste of Alice in Wonderland, the groove of Beyonce and Daft Punk’s music and an orchestral rendition of The Great Gate of Kiev.
Students are behind every element of this incredible spectacular from the on-stage performance and set design to the technical backstage elements of lighting and sound.
The audience will be captivated with show-stopping vocals, high-energy dance routines, electrifying special effects, puppetry and awe-inspiring circus and skating tricks.
Since 1995, the State Government of Victoria has brought together students for this performance to give them the opportunity to develop and showcase their talents when this may not have otherwise been possible.
The Voice’s Harrison Craig, Hairspray’s Jaz Flowers and power house solo artist Vanessa Amorosi are just some of the Victorian Spectacular’s growing list of alumni so this is your chance to see students of today become the stars of tomorrow
The Spectacular fosters healthy, active, participatory lifestyles and produces a creative industry environment that complements school education on a scale that is beyond the capacity of individual schools.
This also gives students the opportunity to train with internationally renowned industry professionals and partner with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Jason Coleman’s Ministry of Dance to create a not-to-be-missed event by Victoria’s most outstanding young performers.
Come and tap your toes to Taylor Swift and Bjork, see talented student artwork on the large screens, be transported to a hip hop and swing hybrid and witness the vibrant, youthful talent of the Victorian State Schools Spectacular.
