Southern Stars – Show Week begins!
This week almost 3000 students (and quite a few teachers and principals) from around the Illawarra and South East Region will be putting the final touches on the Southern Stars show Inspireat the WIN Entertainment Centre in preparation for four shows on Friday and Saturday, August 31 and September 1.
Southern Stars has been going strong for 11 years now and has given many thousands of public school children in our region a unique experience to be part of large scale professionally run show. Many of our performers have gone on to bigger and better things in the worlds of music, dance and drama after leaving school.
Community support is vital to ensure that Southern Stars continues in the future, and with that in mind we encourage everyone in our school community to support Southern Stars by coming to see one of the shows.
It doesn't matter if you know anyone performing in the show or not – Southern Stars is a high energy arena style show which provides great entertainment for people of all ages.
This year's show Inspire will be divided into six segments titled LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE, DREAM, ASPIRE, and ACHIEVE and will include eclectic and diverse dance and musical styles from the National Anthem sung in Dhurawal language, to an African inspired gumboot dance, to a re enactment of You Tube favourite Duck Song, to gospel numbers, hard rock, tango and for the first time ever, a teacher's choir.
Over 12,000 people are expected to attend the four performances at the WIN Entertainment Centre - make sure you are one of them!
Tickets for some shows are still available from Ticketek (Adult $45, Pensioner $35, Student/Child $25 and Family pass $130).
