THEMES

BRIGHTON HILL COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Basingstoke, Hampshire
"I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur!"

    How would you feel about something else's blood being on your hands? How would you feel about being wrapped in a dead body? Would you kill an animal just to look good? Capturing, torturing and killing animals for their fur is a cruel and violent practice, one which makes us question - where does our fur come from?

BRUNE PARK COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Gosport, Hampshire
"Celebrity Wannabe's"

    This year we have decided to look at what types of people strive to be celebrities. How an element of those people seem to go to any length to become a celebrity and the idea of traditional role models have been cast aside. Our performance looks at how the influence of drugs and violence can shape our wannabe celebrities.

CROOKHORN COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY, Waterlooville, Hampshire
"Game On - Game Over"

    Technology has changed the way we play and the time in which we have to play hugely over the last 100 years. We take a whistle stop tour through the development of computer games and the ever increasing danger that it is not just us playing the game but the game playing us in return.

GREAT OAKS SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
"Global Diversity"

    Our performance is all about our world. It is colourful and exciting with lots of different people and cultures. To get the best out of our world we have to open our eyes to the colours and our ears to the sounds. Our main character learns to do that in this performance.

PERINS SCHOOL, Alresford, Hampshire
"Signs in Life"

    As a teenager it?s hard to decide where you belong. Often the way you look and music you like categorises you throughout your life, and can produce tension and rivalry. Every now and then you get a sign in your life, and whether it is good or bad it can bring together the most unlikely of people or old friends.

REGENTS PARK COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Southampton, Hampshire (Premier Team)
"Welcome to the next generation"

    Fairy tales and story books replaced by text books and exams.
    Playground games cancelled due to health and safety.
    TV, the internet and computer games are replacing creativity and imagination. Childhood is changing.
    What is the future for the next generation?

TOTTON COLLEGE, Southampton, Hampshire
"Deceptive Beauty"

    The most beautiful things in life can have an ugly side as a little girl finds out. With harsh disregard for her grotesque creature and clown doll, she favours her pretty pink doll. However, one stormy night love turns to fear. Who will go back in the toy box and who will win a place in the little girl's heart?

TRINITY SCHOOL, Newbury, Berkshire
"World At War"

    A family is torn apart by War: Children evacuated, fathers and sons sent to the front line, homes decimated by bombs. World at War explores the harsh realities of War juxtaposed with the spirit of the people.

WILDERN SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
"The Year I was Born!"

    An investigation into the trends and events of the years the students were born. A whip through time that reminds us of what was happening when we were born, some of it funny, some of it thought provoking and some of it truly life changing. A demonstration of the diversity and the events, trends that shape our lives.
