2017 Schools Spectacular bursts onto screens this Saturday

New England and North West stars are set to burst onto screen this Saturday night (December 16) entertaining television audiences with the triumph of the 2017 Schools Spectacular.

The acclaimed show, which featured talented New England and North West student performers, will be beamed across Australia on the Seven Network in the primetime slot of 7pm.

Shot with 15 cameras at vantage points throughout Sydney’s Qudos Bank, the telecast of the whole show will offer unparalleled appreciation of the enormous talents of the more than 5700 stars of the show.

“It really is a must-see,” Creative Director Sonja Sjolander said.

“There is a reason that audiences, whether in the arena or watching on television, have so much anticipation for the Schools Spectacular each year.

“The vitality of these outstanding young performers is pure joy.

“Schools Spectacular has something for everybody.

“While it was electric in the arena, on television the show offers a completely different dimension of enjoyment.

“It has been magnificently captured by our partners Chief Entertainment for the Seven Network and I’m confident viewers will be thrilled by what they see.”

Ms Sjolander said it will be a chance for the thousands of singers, dancers, musicians, circus performers, actors, stage and production crew and teachers and school staff who made Schools Spectacular 2017 the “biggest and best show ever” to Own the Moment with family and friends.
