Showcase is an inclusive performance opportunity celebrating excellence in the arts across the diocese.

Alternating with CAPTIVATE’s Arts Factor Program on a bi-yearly basis, Showcase allows students to participate in large-scale combined opportunities and is targeted at school groups rather than individual students.

These combined opportunities give students the experience of being part of large ensembles or installations beyond the capacity of any one school, exposing them to a variety of genres that they may not have had the opportunity to experience previously.

These opportunities cater for students of all abilities including those with no prior experience.


Showcase Information Booklet

This could be you!

The CAPTIVATE spirit glows mostly due to the energy and electricity of our students from Years 5 to 12.

Turn on the lights and they’ll show you what it means to be part of the CAPTIVATE family: energy, passion, dedication, ambition and a whole lot of fun.

This could be you!

It is compulsory for one teacher from each school to attend these events in order for the school to participate in Showcase.
