A diverse range of performers and artists are invited to audition to be part of the Arena Spectacular that will be the feature attraction at this year's Sunshine Coast Show from the 16th to 18th of June at the Nambour Show Grounds.. The professional production will be a fantastic opportunity for talent to gain large scale exposure and recognition.
