THEMES

BALLEE COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL, Ballymena, County Antrim
"The Family Portrait"

    There's nothing more special than being a part of a family that listens and comforts and cares. And nothing more special or dear to the heart than the feelings of love that a family shares. Family ties are precious threads no matter where we roam. They draw us close to those we love and pull our hearts back home.

BELFAST MODEL SCHOOL FOR GIRLS, Belfast
"Believe"

    The wicked Snow Queen & her Demons create & smash an evil magic mirror then scatter the tiny pieces so that they pierce the eyes & hearts of children, turning them cold & cruel inside. Jodie loses her friend Aaron to the Snow Queen & must somehow find the belief in herself to save him. Who can help her believe?

CAMBRIDGE HOUSE GRAMMAR SCHOOL, Ballymena, County Antrim
"The Domino Effect"

    Our dance drama follows the story of a group of young people who experiment with drugs. Watch as their lives spiral out of control so that what first appeared to be a good idea, a bit of a laugh becomes a living nightmare as they become entrapped by the 'Domino Effect'.

LITTLE FLOWER GIRLS? SCHOOL, Belfast
"The Brain Game"

    Every young person is faced with choices and moral dilemmas on a daily basis. Often they are influenced by their peers or the media to take a path that conflicts with their better judgment. "The Brain Game" depicts the confusion and internal conflict of young people who are faced with the choice between what is popular, and what is right.

ST COLUMBA'S COLLEGE, Portaferry, County Down
"Are We Human?"

    A deadly virus has annihilated the adult population, leaving only children to survive on their own. The sophisticated hi-tech society that their forefathers created has collapsed into confusion, anarchy and fear. Children must construct a new culture and learn, that in the aftermath of disaster, there comes fresh opportunity and new responsibility. The future is theirs to create!

"Wishful Thinking"

    Come to the funfair of life where a very wise but disgruntled genie shows how people can waste their hopes and dreams on material things. The genie offers a moral to the tale. Wish for something that will last, something that will stay with you forever!
