South Morang’s Georgia Moris loves to perform. The 11-year-old spends her spare time singing, acting, modelling and competing in calisthenics. She dreams of making a career out of performing for others.
In a bid to gain as much experience on stage as possible, Georgia is taking part in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular.
The three-hour-show includes performances from students from more than 200 government schools, and will feature a 64-piece orchestra, more than 1200 dancers, a 1300-voice choir, 30 lead vocalists, 22 roller skaters and 10 puppeteers.
It is expected that more than 10,000 people will pack Hisense Arena for the performances.
Georgia is part of the choir, and says she is looking forward to performing for so many people. The Morang South Primary School pupil is taking part in the event for the second year running.
“I loved the experience and made lots of new friends [last year]. The actual day was amazing, and I loved spending time with my new friends,” she says.
To prepare for the September 10 performances, Georgia attends weekly rehearsals and needs to learn 14 songs.
She said that while she is familiar with some of the songs from the radio, most are new to her, which makes it challenging.
