Blue Blood a royal experience
Out of QRC comes a production full of song, dance and drama.
The event will run for two days:
Saturday 19th March at The Little Carib Theatre, Woodbrook from 7 pm
Sunday 20th March, at La Joya, St Joseph from 6 pm.
Blue Blood begins with an exposition of the wealth of talent and
creativity of the QRC community. The evening climaxes with the "The
Blood Clot" by Ronald Amoroso which returns to the 1970's Black Power
movement in Trinidad and Tobago. Set in a University chapel, this re
enactment of the emerging leaders of that era is an examination of the
reality of leadership in our nation. In fact, that issue of
leadership will weave its multi-faceted way through out the entire
production from Midnight Robbers to Gospelypso to the surprise artistes.
Blue Blood comes after the success of "Sorry Mr President" in May,
2004. The QRC Drama Club has continued to delight its audiences and
copped six awards in the Secondary Schools Drama Festival 2004 with
"The Blood Clot".
The production is a fund-raiser of Leadership 2020, a QRC-based group
that seeks to inculcate high standards of service and integrity in
student-members whose ambition it is to be leaders in society. These
young men are being groomed to be effective, visionary leaders and
skilful problem solvers. They are involved in a myriad of activities,
which stress excellence, diligence, selflessness and initiative.
Proceeds from this event go towards sending students the Global Young
Leaders Conference 2005 to be held in Washington and New York in July
and August this year.
The Global Young Leaders Conference (GYLC) is an intensive and
stimulating leadership conference for high-achieving secondary school
students. It includes a programme of study that aims to build critical
leadership skills. This year's activities are coordinated around the
theme: "The Leaders of Tomorrow Preparing for the Global Challenges
and Responsibilities of the Future." Global issues being treated
include communication, diplomacy, peace and security, economics, law
and human rights, and the role of the United Nations.
At QRC, emphasis is placed on developing articulate, competent and
balanced young men who will emerge as leaders with integrity, capable
of steering the nation forward in the midst of vast social, political
and economic changes. Our nation can only benefit from these students
attending the Global Young Leaders Conference
