Each house selected its own theme, the songs, the storyline, the choreography, designed their own sets 
and what costumes to wear.

Dundas invited the audience to join them in a passage through time to help find a lost elderly relative.

The pupils, from S4-6, performed a number of songs, including One Way or Another to Staying Alive in their quest to find the relative.

Hopetoun hoped to steal the audiences’ hearts and soothe their souls through rock and roll music, thanks to songs such as Rock Around The Clock, Ice, Ice Baby, and Sweet Child of Mine.

Rosebery went for an underwater adventure with songs such as Disney’s 
Under the Sea, Stop Crying Your Heart Out and Loch 

Jim Ferguson, the senior show’s co-ordinator said: “Our pupils have put a great deal of thought and effort into creating the magic of their own show.

“They have experienced something that is unique and indefinable that will stay with them forever.

“With just two weeks for rehearsal it is a remarkable achievement and I am so proud of their work ethic which has been nothing short of outstanding.”

Mr Ferguson wish to thank all sponsors of the show and judges Joanne Ramsay, Christie O’Carroll, Marrissa Keltie and John Glancy.
