About Star Struck

Star Struck is a NSW Department of Education annual performing arts event for Newcastle, the Hunter and Central Coast. It is a showcase of dance, drama and music performed by students from Kindergarten to Year 12 from a vast network of NSW public schools.

Star Struck provides performance and learning opportunities for students in the arts and fosters an appreciation of the performing arts. The program brings together students from very small Primary Schools to large comprehensive High Schools from diverse backgrounds. Students have the opportunity to participate as part of combined dance, drama or choir, with their school groups, or if successful at audition can participate as featured vocalists or instrumentalists. In addition to these on stage roles students also participate as members of the student stage management, choreographic and props design teams.

Students gain valuable experience across a range of vocational areas in the arts and the opportunity to work with industry experts whilst working towards a nationally accredited qualification in Events. Star Struck is one of the largest performance events presented in the area and, as such, enjoys immense local support from the corporate and business sectors, the media and the community.
