THEMES

ANDREW MARVELL BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE COLLEGE, Hull (Showcasing Premier Team)
"The Question of Creation"

    For many years creation of the universe and existence has been questioned. We aim to delve further into that question and explore both sides of the argument - Science versus Religion! We use the circle as a motif throughout the piece to aid the idea of life and existence being a continuum with perhaps no beginning and no end!?!

KINGSWOOD COLLEGE OF ARTS, Hull
"Our School Musical"

    "All the world's a stage... "Our School Musical" takes us on an animal adventure through society's struggles with the economic system we face today. From the fat cats to the workhorses, 'Our School Musical' explores the privileges and the drawbacks of the class system through the popular medium of musical theatre.

KELVIN HALL SCHOOL, Hull
"www.b:warevirus@play.com"

    Advancing technology improves the lives of many, but has also impacted negatively on human interaction and increased human isolation. Our performance shows a group of friends fighting back against the techno viruses threatening to steal imagination and sense of play. The friends unite, combating these cyber clones bringing back childhood dreams of true physical interaction and fun.

MALET LAMBERT SCHOOL LANGUAGE COLLEGE, Hull
"Our Journey - All work and no play"

    Our Rock Challenge journey explores the audition process and the challenges facing boys involved in dance, to the day's excitement and finally our theme of 'All Work and No Play'. Today people spend too much time stressing at work missing out on family life compared to people content at work enjoying quality family time. We conclude awaiting the final result.
