Victorian students – including award-winning magician Tim Mason – are going through their final paces ahead of this year's Victorian State School Spectacular shows on Saturday.
This year's extravaganza The Elements will bring together 3000 students for two shows full of science, dance, singing and magic.
Rowville magician Tim Mason will star in this year's show, and dazzled Channel 7's Morning Show this week with a taste of what he can do.
The 14-year-old magician has already performed in Las Vegas and represented Australia at the International Youth Magic Championships, and is well on his way to realising his dream of becoming a professional performer.
At the Victorian State School Spectacular he will perform alongside an incredible ensemble, including a 64-piece orchestra, 1300-voice choir, 1200 mass dancers, 30 lead vocalists, 14 principal dancers, 16 ensemble dancers, eight backing vocalists, 22 roller skaters and 10 puppeteers.
The Elements will bring together the ancient elements of earth, air, fire and water, the periodic table, and modern pop for shows featuring song, dance, magic and a giant robot cat puppet.
Students from more than 200 government schools are taking part in the production, with two shows at Hisense Arena on Saturday, 10 September, at 1pm and 6.30pm.
More than 10,000 people are expected to see this year's show, which will also be broadcast on Channel 7 on Saturday, 3 December, at 7pm.
