CAPERS takes exceptional talent from public schools across the north of NSW and gives these students an opportunity to perform at a major event. Along with these performers are those from kindergarten to year 12 who simply love to sing, dance and play music. No auditions for them, just the opportunity and skill development to give them the experience of a lifetime.
Names like Roshani, Robert McDougall, Felicity, Chasing Bailey and many more have performed at CAPERS before they embarked on the next stage of their career. Many vocalists, dancers and musician are now performing in professional companies across the world.
CAPERS 2017 will be displaying even more talented students. There is something for everyone in this program: A massed choir of 200 voices: massed dances, tap, and ballet, modern and contemporary: A concert band and musical performers of 80 players: individual items of song, dance and drama. A feature of CAPERS is always the welcome to country and indigenous performances that follow.
Every time this school spectacular is held, audiences leave uttering words like ‘amazing’, extraordinary, wow!’
This is not ‘a kids show’, it is a professionally produced performance with the as much sound and lighting rig used at TRECC for any event including big screens and broadcast quality video, state of the art lighting with spectacular special effects and all the trimmings of a fully professional show. It has taken 12 months of hard work to put it together and our parents and teachers have been working with the students preparing choreography, making costumes, learning songs and making art works.
