Savannah set to shine at Schools Spectacular
The Schools Spectacular has been hailed as the largest amateur variety act in the world, and Guyra Central School year 12 student Savannah Roberts is being heralded as one of this year’s biggest stars.
Savannah was named among the 2019 array of Featured Artists for the School Spectacular which will take place at QUDOS Bank Arena in Sydney’s Olympic Park.
The theme for the 2019 Schools Spectacular is STARS and the featured performers will shine brightly in a galaxy of more than 5500 stars drawn from public schools across NSW.
Savannah is extremely excited to be once again part of School Spectacular and the array of amazing talent and has already taken part in one of her contemporary ensemble rehearsals.
“It has been really good to re-connect with other students that I have met throughout School Spectacular and the theme, choreography, music and costumes will be amazing this year,” Savannah said.
In coming months, Savannah and the thousands of other stars will be dedicated to rehearsals and mustering their energy and passions to create a world-class performance in the best traditions of Schools Spectacular.
