More than 200 young performers are set to take to the stage with the backing of a live orchestra, hosted by one of Australia’s most versatile and much-loved entertainers – Tim Campbell!

For the audience, the event is an entertaining showcase of shows and music. Performances are accompanied by an orchestra who bring the music to life, and students strive to do their best as they perform everything from classic show tunes or family favourites, to original songs or pop hits of the past decades.
