The loss of light performed by Scottish Dance Theatre Primary

Rory the Lion performed by Rep Primary
Here in a pen at Camperdown Zoo, 
Lived Rory the Lion, who was feeling quite blue. 
For she was only six and lived all alone, 
She dreamed of having some friends of her own.
You see, Rory was clever and had goodies amassing, 
Things that the visitors would drop in their passing. 
Bottles and cans which became instruments for the lion,
A musical cacophony without even trying!
Some sticks which could build a big boat if she pleased, 
She could set sail on the Atlantic and travel far East.
And just like that her mind started to unravel, 
Just how far could this gold compass travel?  
With a spirit of wanderlust, she longed to see it all,
To explore the world beyond Camperdown’s walls…

A bigger world performed by Bright Sparks
A tale of adventure and exploration. Nathan has itchy feet and leaves the village he has known all his life to embark on a journey and makes many discoveries.

The Pirate Compass performed by Rep Juniors 1 
Ahoy there! Prepare to embark on a thrilling adventure with Team Destruction and Team The Black Pearls as they race across the seven seas in pursuit of hidden treasure. When disaster strikes and the teams lose their compass and their map, a little help from some conniving crabs and kind-hearted octopuses takes them on an epic journey – where only the bravest team-players emerge victorious. Join them for a tale filled with song, dance and riddles as they sail their way through a legendary quest – where the greatest treasure may not be the gold, but the people they meet along the way.
