1st place and qualifying through to the 2017 Scottish Final: Thurso High School, Thurso, Caithness

The Island - Inspired by William Golding’s Lord of the Flies’ Great Britain is in a state of nuclear war and school children are forced to evacuate to ‘The Island’. How will they survive in paradise without adult leadership and rules? What lurks on the island to ruin their fun? “Maybe there is a beast… maybe it's only us.”

2nd place: Farr High School, Caithness

WW2 A Highland Story - A Highland village uses music and dance to hold its community together during the bleak times of the Second World War. With the absence of husbands, fathers and brothers and a family experiencing the prospect of losing a loved one, the women rally round to bring a new sense of normality and hope to the community.

3rd place: Nairn Academy, Nairn, Highlands

Glamour & Greed - We tell a tale from almost a century ago... of glamour, greed and great wealth. With love, indulgence and betrayal at every corner, and the influence of alcohol wreaking havoc, this drama teaches us important lessons. Now, watch as this story of decadence unfolds...
