Can the whole school be involved in this experience?
The maximum number of students that can take part in the onstage performance is 100. However, there are many ways to involve students who are not performing. For example, students can help with concept development, prop making, costume design and creation, script writing, etc.
More details on this will be provided to the shortlisted schools in the Creative Toolkit, which will be distributed in January 2020.
