Step into the Limelight, the Territory’s creative and performing arts showcase event for public schools, began in 2007 and has grown to become the largest youth Arts event in the ACT. More than 1800 students from over 65 public schools, from Pre School to Year 12, will work closely with their teachers, professional artists, tertiary institutions and arts organisations to develop outstanding artistic works for the show.

Limelight provides unique performance, enriched learning and talent development opportunities for students studying the arts in ACT Public schools. The production has been recognised by ACT Children’s Week and the Canberra Area Theatre Awards for the integral role it plays in linking schools with professional arts organisations and providing vocational pathways in the arts for ACT students. More than 2000 students from all sectors of our system participate in these events, spending the months prior working closely with their teachers, professional artists, tertiary institutions and arts organisations to develop outstanding artistic works for the events.
