    THEMES

    COTTINGHAM HIGH SCHOOL, Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire
    "Cottonwool Culture"

      Our piece explores the idea that our society has made us fearful of hidden dangers, convincing some of us to wrap our children in cotton wool, but are those that are free of that protection any worse or better off?

    HORNSEA SCHOOL AND LANGUAGE COLLEGE, Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire
    "Time Stands Still For No Man"

      Blessed with the most precious gift of time, what happens if we squander it and don't appreciate its true value? Watch as the time thieves steal this gift away until Jack learns the important lesson of how to use time more wisely and not to waste precious moments, no matter how small. After all, "Time Stands Still For No Man".

    MATTHEW HUMBERSTONE SCHOOL, Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire
    "Superstition"

      Since this is our thirteenth Rock Challenge we have chosen "Superstition" as our theme. Let's hope it's not unlucky for us! Join our superstitious young couple as they prepare nervously for their wedding and are confronted with a multitude of classic superstitions. Will their special day pass off without a hitch? Fingers crossed!

    SOUTH HOLDERNESS TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Preston, East Riding of Yorkshire
    "What Would be Inside Your Head?"

      The profound piece starts with a street frozen in time. Two characters move through the street, setting the scene. The street comes alive, with the patrolling soldiers coming under attack. They collapse at the front of the stage and the stage becomes a platform for expressing "what's inside their head". The work closes, with their troop recovering the missing soldiers.

    THE LINDSEY SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ARTS COLLEGE, Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire
    "Restless Spirits and Ringing Bells"

      A sea bell tolls, the usually lively fishing port becomes suddenly deserted as a terrible mist engulfs the village, bringing sickness and death to the community. The villagers believe that the mist is really the vengeful spirits of those who have lost their lives at sea. Seeking sanctuary at the local Abbey, they ask for help, but will their prayers be answered?

    WITHERNSEA HIGH SCHOOL AND HUMANITIES COLLEGE, Withernsea, East Riding of Yorkshire
    "War of the Worlds"

      No-one would have believed that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this earth with envious eyes and slowly and surely they drew their plans against us.

    BAYSGARTH SCHOOL, Barton upon Humber, North Lincolnshire
    ""

      Very sadly, Baysgarth had to pull out of the event at short notice with over a quarter of their team still unable to get back from mainland Europe because of the collapse of air transport due to the cloud of Icelandic volcanic ash :(
