Stage Challenge Stage Challenge is a dance, drama and design spectacular where the students are the stars. It is part of a global event reflecting the personalities, concerns, hopes, dreams and interests of students. Each performance runs between five and eight minutes and is set to a medley of published and recorded music tracks. A group of five students are responsible for Stage Challenge and they develop a concept for the performance, choreograph the dances, source the music, design costumes and lighting and organise auditions. From the start of March the selected performers meet twice a week for rehearsals lasting 2–3 hours.
