So we put together our performance - then what?

On the designated event day, competing schools in the region assemble at a professional venue for a day of interaction, rehearsals and fun. In the evening, the schools perform to an audience of their peers, families and community members. The performances are judged by a panel of specialists from the performing arts industry.
