BULLY SCHOOLS TOUR 2012
ACTIVE DRAMA EMBARKS ON OUR BIGGEST TOUR YET!
From January through to June 2012
Bully has played in front of thousands upon thousands of young people with a fantastic reaction both as a piece of theatre and as an educational experience. It is now recognised as one of the most successful pieces of theatre for schools in the country.
The interactive performance lasts between an hour and 1 ½ hours and can be played in front of the whole school, a year group or a class group.
We can, of course, change and adapt to suit the needs of your school. As part of the performance there are discussions focussing on what is bullying, who could be bullied and what type of person could become a bully.
The audience are encouraged to discuss questions raised as well as finding solutions to the central bullying issues as well as any issues within you school. This really does work!
There are five actors and a presenter on the road with this production making it one of the largest cast for a Schools tour in the country.
The team will be led by Brian McCann, our artistic director, and a leading speaker on BULLYING in the North of England.
"THE BEST PIECE OF THEATRE IN EDUCATION I HAVE SEEN IN MY 25YEARS AS A TEACHER."
We can also provide additional workshops that complements the production for a smaller groups focussing on areas you may feel necessary for your school.
