Thirsty Merc’s Phil Stack, The Australian Ballet’s Ella Havelka and country music singer-songwriter Sarah Head will be among about 100 performers to celebrate the Centenary of Public High School Education in Dubbo.

They will perform in Saecularia—A Celebration of Performance at Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre from 2pm on Sunday, April 23.

The two-hour show, including an interval, is on the official program of the centenary celebrations from April 21 to 24.

The performers are past and present students and staff of public high schools in Dubbo.

Public school teacher of 41 years and Dubbo Theatre Company stalwart Chris Bray is co-ordinator of the show that will “celebrate performance and performers”.

“Speaking will be limited but performance will be in abundance,” she said.

Three school choirs and members of Circus West will also take part in Saecularia, Latin for 100 years.

Only 480 seats are available. Tickets can be bought at www.123tix.com.au
