Issued by Rock Challenge®
The results are in from the 2017 Safer Highland Rock Challenge®
Tonight (4 April), the event held at Eden Court Theatre for the second night in a row was performed to a sold out audience and was supported by the Safer Highland Partnership and Police Scotland’s Choices for Life.
1st place tonight- qualifying through to the 2017 Scottish Final: Invergordon Academy, Invergordon - Still in Chains
In our darkest need we are all tempted by revenge – to pass the pain on to someone else. However, even with powers beyond natural order, can a young slave girl undo the theft of freedom, pointless murder and evil deeds that linger, even within the far reaches of her dreams? Can she ever be truly free from the painful past?
2nd place and also qualifying through to the 2017 Scottish Final: Dingwall Academy, Dingwall, Ross-shire - Dia de los Muertos
His Mother’s love gone, family pride at stake, poor Enzo has a difficult choice he must make. To dance with his heart, or fight with his head, to stay with the remembered, or be captured by the dead. Will his family’s love be enough to help him get through, or will he succumb to the spirit of the bull.
3rd place tonight: Grantown Grammar School, Grantown-on-Spey - Tam O'Shanter - A Modern Twist
In our modern-day retelling of Tam O’Shanter we encounter an everyday market seller who gets caught up in a drug fuelled celebration with his friends. This leads to a horrifying midnight experience on the way home where they get dragged into the struggle between good and evil. Who will win out in the end?
Attending this evening were an array of sponsors, local authority figures and invited special guests. Following the show quotes were obtained from the following guests:
From Highland Alcohol and Drug Partnership, Debbie Stewart, Co-ordinator commented: “It was a fantastic show, the standard is absolutely amazing, I can’t believe the numbers of kids that are involved and I also can’t believe the number of families, members of the community. What we actually see on stage is fantastic but that’s just one part of how Rock Challenge impacts/works in local communities. It is a key part of our prevention programs to encourage young people to get a more natural high and avoid drugs and alcohol. Just brilliant!!”
