The three hour extravaganza will air at 7pm this Saturday night (December 3) on Prime7. Mid North Coast schools represented in the 2016 Schools Spectacular included Forster Public, Gloucester High School and Primary, Great Lakes College campuses and Bulahdelah Central School. 

“We welcomed a new chapter in the 33-year history of the Schools Spectacular with the biggest-ever show in a brand new venue,” executive producer Jane Simmons said.

“The energy and excitement took performances to a new level and that should jump out through the screens.”

The cast spontaneously erupted into cheers and applause as Guinness Records representative Solvej Malouf confirmed that the Largest Amateur Variety Act record in the world had been attained by the cast.

Creative Director Sonja Sjolander said it will be a chance for the 5500 performers and thousands more who contributed behind the scenes to relive the exhilaration of the show and congratulate themselves on a wonderful performance.

“Watching the show gives us all a chance to pay tribute to these stars while enjoying a hugely entertaining show featuring something for everybody.”

More than a million viewers are anticipated to tune in on Saturday night, with no repeat performances scheduled at this stage.
