“Our students in K-5 were treated to a special performance by Kaleidoscope Theatre on bullying. These talented cast members presented a clear and consistent anti-bullying message stressing the affirmation of each person’s self-worth. It also stressed the development of social skills that enable students to make friends and coexist peacefully."

"Bravo!!!!

The play was awesome and the students thoroughly enjoyed the performance!


They were thanking me all day for bringing your theater group to our
school. “B.U.L.L.Y.” is a powerful and entertaining presentation about the
bullying issues in our schools. Your troupe was outstanding with their
sincere outreach to help our students understand this important topic.


Thank you for a wonderful day at Northbridge Middle School!"

 

 

 

"Thank you so much for the fabulous performance you did for our ninth grade class.  The message you portrayed was current and realistic.  Unlike most presentations on bullying which are delivered by adults, the high school actors, who were amazingly talented, held the students attention throughout the entire play and consequently the message was meaningful and relevant to them.

 

Again, thank you from all of the faculty and ninth graders for allowing us to host this performance, and please make sure that all involved know how well the play was received.  It facilitated discussions on bullying the next day in advisory, and the guidance counselors will also be following up with additional information/lessons with the 9th graders on the many problems and the serious effects associated with bullying."
