What is Schools on Stage?
Schools on Stage is a musical extravaganza which sees local schools put their talents to the test! Each of the participating schools has selected two songs from their 2012 school musical which they will bring to life on stage. Keep an eye out for Australia’s next big stars as more than 200 young performers battle it out in a dazzling display of talent! Enjoy a mixture of much-loved show tunes as well as some new favourites.
After each school has performed their songs it will be up to the judges to make the tough decision: who will be announced the winner of Schools on Stage?
The schools preparing for this musical sensation are:
• Alkira Secondary College performing from “Back To The 80’s”
• Beaconhills College performing from “The Wiz”
• Cranbourne East Secondary College performing from “Beauty and the Beast Junior”
• Cranbourne Secondary College performing from “Thoroughly Modern Millie Junior”
