Local performers set to star in The Greatest ever Schools Spectacular

The curtain has gone up on North Coast schools that will be represented in the 2018 Schools Spectacular that will be staged at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney’s Olympic Park on Friday and Saturday, 23 and 24 November.

Students from Grafton High; Maclean High and South Grafton High have been chosen to star in the entertainment extravaganza including Georgia Cummins of Grafton High who has been named last month as a Featured Performer.

They will be joining more than 5,000 stars including 40 Featured Performers, an incredible 100-piece symphony orchestra, stage band, 2,700-voice choir, 2,300 amazing dancers, the D’Arts Ensemble disability program, the Aboriginal Dance Company, puppets and an indispensable behind-the-scenes team.

Schools Spectacular Creative Director, Sonja Sjolander has no doubt that with the North Coast contribution, this year’s Schools Spectacular will live up to its theme: The Greatest.

“Together as one we shine brighter,” Ms Sjolander said.

“That is our greatest strength.”
