FOURTEEN thousand sets of eyes and ears will fall on this teen duo when they take centre stage for the Star Struck 2014 opening act at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.

This year the annual Hunter and Central Coast schools' performing arts extravaganza will display more than 3000 students' talent.

Charlestown's Fabihah Siddique, 15, and Booragul's Jamie Razon, 16, will open the production with a duet of Magic To Do from the 1972 Broadway musical Pippin.

A 60-piece orchestra will accompany them while they perform to a vivid display of acrobatics around them.

They will each wear a ringmaster's costume, keeping in line with the Star Struck 2014 theme Magic Happens.

The four-minute Broadway song is a new style to both girls.

Fabihah grew up singing Bengali folk songs, while Jamie has perfected the art of pop. She hopes to show first-time performer Fabihah the ropes, having had vocal lessons since she was 11.

This will be Jamie's fourth Star Struck performance.

Fabihah will also perform Roxette's She's Got the Look in the second half, and Jamie will sing Firework by Katy Perry for the finale.

There are two performances - this Friday, June 13, and Saturday, June 14. Tickets are available from ticketek.com.au or phone 4921 2121.
