The annual Victorian State Schools Spectacular provides an invaluable performing arts opportunity for Victoria’s government school students from Prep to Year 12, encouraging development of their creative skills, discipline, perseverance and confidence over months of rehearsals.
As one of the largest recurring productions in Australia, the Victorian State Schools Spectacular brings together over 3000 school students performing as a 64 piece orchestra, 1300 voice choir, 1200 mass dancers, 30 lead vocalists, 16 principal dancers, 20 ensemble dancers, 8 backing vocalists, roller skaters and puppeteers and much more.
The Spectacular also provides a unique training opportunity for students behind the scenes on audio, lighting and video production, stage management, costume and film, make up, photography, and publicity.
The Spectacular displays and unites government school communities through working towards a common goal of more students reaching the highest level of achievement in the arts, ensuring kids are happy, healthy and resilient, and building pride in our schools.
