    THEMES

    BROADLEA PRIMARY SCHOOL, Sandown, Isle of Wight
    "Not so charming!"

      Cinderella thinks she can no longer live her miserable life when suddenly her fairy godmother appears. You know this traditional tale ends with a wedding! But is it happily ever after? This modern twisted tale shows us that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Sometimes you just don't know what you'll miss until it's gone.

    COWES PRIMARY SCHOOL, Cowes, Isle of Wight
    "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger"

      Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The Island Games began on the Isle of Man in 1985. 25 Islands assemble every 2 years to compete in 14 different sports over 7 days with over 4000 participants. It is eighteen years since the Isle of Wight hosted this event and our performance tonight is a celebration of this gathering.

    DOVER PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL, Ryde, Isle of Wight
    "Give your troubles a second chance"

      From time to time we all have our little worries that can weigh us down. With the help of the troublemaker can Jenna learn to accept that her own worries are not so bad, turning them all by herself into something more positive.

    NORTHERN PARADE, Portsmouth, Hampshire
    "Here's one for our heroes"

      The pride, the ambition, the love, the despair, the worry and unfortunately the loss. 2010 saw the total number of deaths from battle rise to over 300. This story shows the journey and ambition of six soldiers mixed with the hopes, fears and unfortunately devastation for the families left behind.

She uses this magic to improve her struggling community. The jealous Emperor desires the powerful brush for his own evil gain. However, Shen rallies the spirit of her villagers, this and a mighty dragon, scupper the Emperor's plans.

    PAULSGROVE PRIMARY SCHOOL, Portsmouth, Hampshire
    "Dance around the World"

      The way that people dance is extremely different around the world. Many countries have their own traditional customs and ways of dancing.

We hope you enjoy a trip around the world!

    PEEL COMMON JUNIOR SCHOOL, Gosport, Hampshire
    "A Fiesta Fusion"

      What happens when you lose yourself in an inspiring situation? Can dreams ever become reality? We explore the life of a girl living in the slums of Brazil. Watch as she becomes immersed in the glamour, vibrant colour and unstoppable rhythm of the Rio de Janeiro carnival. Can she achieve her dreams or is too much standing in her way?

    PORTSDOWN PRIMARY SCHOOL, Wymering, Hampshire
    "Cardboard City"

      The term 'Street Children' is used to refer to children who live on city streets, who are deprived of family care and protection. Ages of these children range between 5 and 17. Their population worldwide varies. They live in junk boxes, parks, doorways or on the street itself. We pass them on the street, but do we really see them?

    ROWNER JUNIOR SCHOOL, Gosport, Hampshire
    "Dream, Believe, Achieve"

      Diversity, a dance group ranging in age from 13-26, won Britain's Got Talent in 2009. They are a remarkable example of what can be accomplished with hard work, dedication and belief. Through the inspiration of groups like Diversity, our performance centres on youths being dedicated, hardworking and believing in themselves.
