Fab five: Showquest


Showquest  is a new performing arts platform that supports schools and students from year 1 to 13 to showcase music, drama and dance. Schools create their own student lead teams who create, produce and perform an original theatrical production consisting of student-designed and constructed costumes and props, presented in a choreographed, themed mini-spectacular. Show starts from 7pm on Saturday night at Claudelands Arena.
