In 2019, Creative Generation – State Schools Onstage (CGEN) celebrated its 15th year as Queensland's largest youth performing arts program, providing students with exposure to the industry as young artists through auditions, workshops, professional coaching and rehearsal opportunities from February to July, culminating in four spectacular performances on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The 2019 theme ‘Our time’, celebrated key milestones of humankind through music and dance. From famous works of art, inspirational speeches, technological breakthroughs such as the invention of radio, the telephone, moon landing and a range of other milestones that are all now celebrated legacies in world history. The show encouraged today’s young people to create their own legacies that will be celebrated long into the future.
A 90 minute show selection from CGEN 2019 will be televised nationally on Network 10 on Saturday 28 September at 12 noon with an encore screening on Sunday 29 September at 11am on 10PEACH.
Preparations are already underway for CGEN 2020! Information regarding nominations for 2020 will be released later this year.
