SWAN Hill Town Hall will come alive on Wednesday when Jeanette Young's performing arts group take to the stage to celebrate International Day of People with a Disability.

Now in it's second year, Ms Young said the concert's objective is to promote people's abilities rather than disabilities.

"I like to adopt the motto, 'lets take the dis out of disability,' switching the focus to showcasing abilities," she said.

"The show is a great example of that as we have performers demonstrating singing, dancing comedy and dramatic performance.

"Our theme song was also written and performed by our members."

Downtown in Our Town is this year's show title and highlights the region.

The opening performance will showcase a year's worth of rehearsals for the 30 cast members who range in age from 18 - 59.

Compares Kye King and Jono Wright also wrote their own scripts for the performance.

"It will be a great show, where people are encouraged to come along and enjoy themselves," Ms Young said.

There will be two shows on November 30, one starting at 11am and one at 7pm.

Tickets are on sale now at the Swan Hill Visitor Information Centre or can be purchased at the door. 

International day of Disability is formally acknowledged on December 3.
