    THEMES

    FRIESLAND SCHOOL SPECIALIST PERFORMING ARTS SCHOOL, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
    "The American Dream"

      How do you survive in the city that never sleeps? We follow two people in search of their American Dream, whether it's fame and fortune in Hollywood or money and power on Wall Street. But is the American Dream all it's cracked up to be? What happens to people who don't achieve this dream? Will success or failure follow them?

    MAGNUS C OF E SCHOOL, Newark, Nottinghamshire
    "Seven Deadly Sins"

      Pride, Envy, Greed, Lust, Gluttony, Wrath and Sloth- the Seven Deadly Sins that can affect us all. Controlled and unleashed by the God of the Underworld to try to lead the pure into temptation, will they resist?

    ORMISTON VICTORY ACADEMY, Norwich, Norfolk
    "Divided Love"

      Two households, both alike in dignity,
      In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
      From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
      Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
      From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
      A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life...

    RAWLETT COMMUNITY SPORTS COLLEGE, Tamworth, Staffordshire
    "Delerium"

      Some drugs heighten awareness to one's surroundings with a slowing down of sense, time and movement. As Alice falls down the hole she has time to look around her and wonder what will happen next. Alice trips through Wonderland expanding her imagination to incredible heights with no idea of the demons she will be forced to face.

    ROYDS SCHOOL SPECIALIST LANGUAGE COLLEGE, Leeds, West Yorkshire
    "Veneficus Solacium"

      Many generations have passed since Mickey was the first Sorcerer's Apprentice. We are now in 2999 approaching the new millennium and the Sorcerer is training his young apprentice using the original magic book from 1955. Over 1000 years on will history repeat itself with magic tempting the Apprentice to use power beyond his control to complete his chores?

    ST PAUL'S CATHOLIC SCHOOL, Leicester, Leicestershire
    "The Immortal Clockwork"

      Based on Antony Burgess's 'A Clockwork Orange', our charismatic and delinquent piece of art is based on a repressive, totalitarian super-State. In our society ordinary citizens have fallen into a passive stupor of complacency. Blind to the insidious growth of a rampant violent youth culture.
