Students perform in schools' showcase
Students from Ettalong Public School and Brisbane Water Secondary College will perform in the Central Coast Schools' Showcase at Laycock St Theatre on July 8 and 9.
According to event coordinator Ms Lorraine Watson: "Showcase does exactly what it says - it showcases the talents of primary and secondary public school students.
"There are individuals and group acts performing instrumental, vocal drama and dance items, including an entry from Junior Rock Eisteddfod.
"Showcase gives students an opportunity to experience a live performance in front of the general public.
"Over 40 schools will be represented from across the Central Coast.
"Many of the students appearing have also performed in local productions."
Ms Watson said audition tapes were reviewed by a panel made up of music, dance and drama teachers from various schools earlier in the year.
"This year, the selection committee received a staggering 300 applications for 50 places on offer," Ms Watson said.
Chairperson for Showcase Ms Karen Morrow said this year's performance would be bigger and better than ever, providing a "great night out for anyone interested in music, drams or dance".
"The finale each night includes students from various schools, working together to produce a show stopping number," Ms Morrow said.
"Showcase is also a great opportunity for school children to support their peers.
Tickets to the event start from $12 for children and $20 for adults.

The performance will start from 7pm each night.
