    Roll up, roll up for Creative Generation tickets

    Education Minister Grace Grace has urged Queenslanders to get their tickets for the state’s largest youth performing arts event, Creative Generation – State Schools Onstage.

    “Tickets are now on sale for the amazing CGEN performances at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre,” Ms Grace said.

    “Now in its 14th year, this year’s CGEN will showcase more than 1800 talented state primary and secondary school students from across Queensland.

    “This year the theme is ‘THIS IS ME’ with a circus focus in an arena spectacular full of technicolour, top hats, tricks and tightropes.

    “The magic of the big top will be mixed with song, dance and drama to form a finely balanced display of world class entertainment.”

    Ms Grace said the 2018 carnival of talent would embrace diversity and celebrate self-empowerment through confidence, community and the creative arts.

    “Students are encouraged to be themselves, believe in themselves and dream big,” she said.

    “The 2018 show will include a 70-piece symphony orchestra, a 500-voice choir, 700 dancers and more than 50 featured soloists, who will be joined by some of Queensland’s most respected professional artists.

    “The state school performers range from Prep to Year 12 and many will travel thousands of kilometres during the months of rehearsals to be part of the event and showcase their talents in the final shows.

    “I encourage those who appreciate top class acts to roll up and book tickets for one of the four shows at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday 13 July and Saturday 14 July.”

    Creative Generation – State Schools Onstage 2018 is presented by the Department of Education.

    Sponsors include QUT, AEG Ogden, The Courier Mail, Network Ten, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, and QSuper.

    Tickets to Creative Generation – State Schools Onstage 2018 are available through Ticketek on 132 849 or at www.ticketek.com.au.
