THEMES

ARBROATH ACADEMY, Arbroath, Angus
"In Seventh Heaven?"

    Rhianne is in the nightclub "Seventh Heaven" and is offered drugs. Everyone in the club says "no", but the pressure is too much for Rhianne who gives in to temptation. Her life then goes into a downward spiral and she loses everything, including her friends. If Rhianne is given the chance to go back, will she make the same mistake?

ELLON ACADEMY, Ellon, Aberdeenshire
"Web Of Lies"

    Lies, deception, dishonesty. Lies tear us up inside. For our politician, his life?s work falls apart when his wife and son tell lies, twisting and distorting the truth. Lies, the evil of our kind, weave their way into every person?s mind through the media. Don?t let lies over run, don?t let them stay and haunt you. We want the truth.

FRASERBURGH ACADEMY, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire
"Be Proud"

    The Olympics is an event used to showcase the hardest working athletes from across the world. The Olympics are symbolic of the ideal that with effort and perseverance anyone can achieve anything in life. By not giving up when obstacles are thrown in your path, on the winner's stand or in the crowd, you have the right to feel proud.

KEMNAY ACADEMY, Kemnay, Aberdeenshire
"Smells like teen spirits"

    As many of our committee members are at the driving age, we have become more aware of the responsibility of driving. We realise the dangers of driving with friends especially with the added pressure of giving peers lifts home. Our performance tells the story of a girl who's night out didn't go to plan...

MACKIE ACADEMY, Stonehaven, Kincardineshire
"Respect: It's Elementary"

    Our Rock Challenge addresses the issue of the environment and man's disrespect for planet Earth. The message that we are trying to portray in our performance is that of the unparalleled strength of Mother Nature. We feel it is time that we all realised that we are guests on this planet and should treat it with the respect it deserves.

PETERHEAD ACADEMY, Peterhead, Aberdeenshire
"Written In The Stars ?"

    Confident and enthusiastic. Physically strong with penetrating eyes. A born leader who likes the colour red. Does this describe you? And does it really all come from when you were born? Does everyone born in April really look and act the same? Follow our characters and see how much the stars control their fate.
