Schools Spectacular was born out of an acoustic test over 30 years ago for Sydney’s newest venue, the Entertainment Centre (now Qantas Credit Union Arena). Since then, it has become one of the largest annual performance events by public schools in the world.
Over 3600 talented performers and over 600 teachers from 400 schools come together to create an incredible show and we are constantly thrilled to partner with the NSW Department of Education Arts Unit to help stage this truly spectacular event.
Logistically, this is an enormous operation as not only is it an arena show which is broadcast across Australia, there are also thousands of kids to rehearse and choreograph, a full orchestra, stage band and choir.
Having delivered countless live shows, this was no problem us. True to form we delivered all elements of the highly complicated production seamlessly from operations to special effects and aerial acts to safety and delivery with the rest of the team.
Exciting times are ahead as the event continues to evolve and finds itself in a new home, the Qudos Bank Arena. The new venue sets the scene for a bigger and even more spectacular show and we are more than happy to be along for the journey.
