WHEN the New England’s song and dance spectacular began 14 years ago, youngster Rahnee Coleman wasn’t even thought of.
Now she’s a featured artist in the CAPERS (Creative Arts in Public Education Regional Spectacular) event at Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre.
The 10-year-old Tamworth South Public student was one of 13
to be put through their paces yesterday by regional arts co-ordinator Di Hall and past CAPERS stars Roshani Priddis and Robert McDougall.
Among the performances is You Can’t Stop The Beat, brought to life by the musical Hairspray.
There are solo and feature performances, dance numbers and whole-ensemble productions including an 80-strong concert band, making tough work for the region’s students and teachers.
It’s on November 1 and 2 with tickets from Destination Tamworth.
