"Working 9 to 5"
Our theme for Rock Challenge is "Working 9 to 5" and the different jobs involved in everyday life. You will see a variety of work environments and how people unwind after a stressful day at work. We chose this theme because we thought it represented how work influences the world around us. We hope you enjoy our performance.

Our scene tells the story of how the recession can affect lives, how the loss of money can sometimes lead people into a life of crime, getting in with the wrong crowd and being persuaded to do things they would never have done. Life is full of choices. Making the right choice is difficult but it's always the best option.
