    THEMES

    ANDREW MARVELL BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE COLLEGE, Kingston upon Hull
    "Question Perception?"

      Our performance investigates the way people perceive things differently and we ain to question what is normal, what is beautiful, what is madness? we want to encourage people to start embracing differences instead of fearing them and don't stop believing that to question perception broadens our horizons and opens our minds to all sorts of possibilities.

    ARCHBISHOP SENTAMU ACADEMY, Kingston upon Hull
    "Equilibrium"

      A typical day in the city - the rats ready for the race. Enter Bill - ambitious and ruthless. What transpires is a realisation that Bill's casting aside his family in search of financial gain. In the wings, someone's ready to take his place. Can he address the balance between life and work in order to achieve a state of equilibrium?

    KINGSWOOD COLLEGE OF THE ARTS, Kingston upon Hull
    "Switch"

      Our leading characters are frustrated at the day-to-day grind of being teenagers and argue over who has it worse: Boys, or Girls? In a bid to settle the dispute, they build a machine that switches their brains into each other's bodies. From PE locker rooms to biology lessons, the school prom ... who knows what the day will bring!

    MALET LAMBERT SCHOOL LANGUAGE COLLEGE, Kingston upon Hull
    "Let the LEGENDS live on"

      Throughout our lifetimes so many musical artists have entered our world, performed their magic and then were taken from us so young. Jam Master Jay, Eva Cassidy, Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, to name just a few. Was it ill health, media pressure, a crazed fan that caused these deaths? Let's celebrate their lives: let the legends live on!!

    NORTHCOTT SCHOOL, Kingston upon Hull
    "Cyborg-Bullying: A Robot's Reality"

      A group of crazed scientists join forces to achieve their only ambition: to create a fleet of dancing robots. But when one robot malfunctions, it is cast out from the group and its creator is driven to despair. Only through working together can robot and creator succeed in winning back the respect of the robot community.

    ST. MARY'S COLLEGE, Kingston upon Hull
    "Slip Through The Net"

      St. Mary's draws awareness to children in schools who silently suffer from dyslexia, dyscalculia and other needs that affect learning. A frustrated pupil battles the school - life circus, struggles to make friends and cope with the ring-leader teacher who churns out a whirlwind of challenging acts for her to face. Will she slip through the net?

    WINIFRED HOLTBY SCHOOL TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE, Kingston upon Hull
    "Come into our World"

      Wendy is under pressure in school. Tinkerbell and Peter Pan take her to an opposite world where the rule is to have fun and party. This reminds Wendy of her childhood. However, a world with no responsibilities becomes too chaotic. They all return to Wendy's world showing that balance of work and play is needed to create the perfect equilibrium.
