    THEMES

    ALL SAINTS ACADEMY, Dunstable, Bedfordshire (New school)
    "Innocence and Experience"

      Our piece is based on William Blake's "Songs of innocence and experience". Through our performance we communicate the underlying and key themes evident in his poetry, including the tainting of innocence present in "The Sick Rose", the difference between Faith and organised religion in his time, and the power of the "Tiger" in contrast to the purity of the "Lamb".

    THE ASTLEY COOPER SCHOOL, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire (New school)
    "Don't Get Me Wrong!"

      Ben is a normal guy, he is good looking, has a good job, enjoys being active and is currently searching for love. Sounds like he has it all, doesn't it?! One small thing; he has a mental health problem. Does this change your opinion of him?

    BARNWELL BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE SCHOOL, Stevenage, Hertfordshire
    "CarnEvil"

      The ring-master at the local pleasure park promises a death-defying ride on the latest ride: "CarnEvil".

    KINGS LANGLEY SCHOOL, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire (Premier School showcase performance)
    "Taken !"

      "Come little children, I'll take thee away." The theme of witches capturing children has long been depicted in fairytales, with the Witch in Hansel and Gretel recently voted the scariest fairytale Witch of all time. But is the idea as eccentric as it seems ? A vivid imagination, or is their bedtime story actually a warning in a mystical disguise ?

    LAURANCE HAINES SCHOOL, Watford, Hertfordshire (Junior School showcase performance)
    "The Story of Persephone"

      Beautiful Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, is kidnapped by Hades and taken to the Underworld. Zeus and Demeter search desperately for their daughter and Hades finally agrees to release Persephone to Zeus for six months of every year. Persephone's eternal journeys between the underworld and the living world dictate the changing seasons of the Earth.

    "Present Fears are Less than Horrible Imaginings"

      Our performance tells the story of a young girl struggling to overcome her fears. As she grows up, she faces fears of clowns, heights, and failure, and she suffers from claustrophobia. Finally she decides that she cannot let herself be ruled by her fears any more, and she begins to conquer them one by one.

One boy is taken on a journey through time, but is his vision into the future enough to make him change his ways ?

    ST PAUL'S C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL, Chipperfield, Hertfordshire (Junior School showcase performance)
    "Mixed Messages"

      We start with positive aspects of technology such as communication all over the world. we then warn of pressures that technology can put on young people today with cyber bullying, nasty computer games and violent films. Our message is to let us enjoy being free and innocent as children - stop us being exposed to these horrible ideas and images.
