Talented pupils from Forfar Academy travelled to Dundee on Monday to compete in day two of the 2015 Be Your Best Dundee Rock Challenge, finishing in second place behind Montrose Academy.

Inspired by the classic story of Hansel and Gretel, Forfar Academy captured the audience instantly with their expressive performance ‘A Twisted Tale…’

The choreography itself was executed at all times with conviction and passion whilst the production elements worked simultaneously to ensure the clarity of the narrative.

Their performance picked up 10 awards, including the Angus Council Award of Excellence for Choreography; Angus Council Award of Excellence for Performance Skill and the Perth and Kinross Council Award of Excellence for Stage Use.

The event, held at The Caird Hall, attracted a large audience and was supported by Angus Council, Perth and Kinross Council and Police Scotland.

Rock Challenge is an annual tour de force in the Forfar Academy calendar which sees a cast and crew of over 70 come together to pull off a creative and skilled performance. The pupils take a leading role in the full-scale production, including choreography, costume and make-up design and set design and construction.
