Schools Spectacular to highlight talented camden Haven High students

Saturday night (December 7) is a big night for the tens of thousands of family and friends of the 5500 stars of this year's Schools Spectacular as they watch their performance debut on national television.

But the Schools Spectacular Creative Director, Sonja Sjolander said that will also be a great night for anyone who wants to watch joyous, uplifting television.

"The infectious enthusiasm and amazing talent of our Schools Spectacular will warm everyone's hearts," Ms Sjolander said.

"We've been thrilled by the accolades that have followed this year's show.

"They have praised the richness, colour, vitality and creativity - and, of course, this makes for great television."

The Schools Spectacular will be broadcast Australia-wide on the Seven Network from 7pm on december 7.

Camden Haven High School students will join students from across the state as the dance, sing and perform on stage.

Ms Sjolander said there will be something for everybody from a rock band recreating the worldwide hit from Spiderman 2 through to beautiful music from the 100-piece symphony orchestra and 2800-voice choir accompanying the classical ballet.

They will see plenty of colour and nostalgia including the fantasy of the Welcome to Wonderland segment through to the celebration of the 80th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz to a 90s music flashback and the tribute to the hit movie and musical, Footloose.

Once again John Foreman, himself an alumni of the Schools Spectacular, will compere the show and delight with his incredible musical skills on the grand piano.

Each year the Schools Spectacular has a theme and this year it was stars.

"Everyone truly lived up to their star billing," she said.

"They really shone and together our galaxy of stars made the 2019 Schools Spectacular a show to remember."
