Bullied no more! Reinhardt University is hosting a free forty-minute musical for third through fifth graders which will come to your school at your choice date from January-May, 2016! Addressing Cherokee County’s bullying education objectives, Bullies, the Musical! will act as a catalyst in creating conversations around bullying behavior, bystander strategies, and mutual respect. As Arlene, the main character of the show’s Fifth Grade Talent Show, sings, “Saying Nothing is like Saying Something!”
AUDIENCE: Third grade on up. The musical is tailored for specific grade levels and audiences.
PROCEDURE: After viewing BULLIES, the MUSICAL! teachers will discuss bullying prevention strategies as outlined in the Bullying Talkback Handout.
GOAL: By creating a dialogue pertaining to bullying behavior and bystander strategies, the show will propel students and staff to heighten bullying awareness in a preventative, systematic, way.
HOW DO WE REACH OUR KIDS ABOUT THE MESSAGE OF BULLYING IN A COMEDIC, MUSICAL, WAY?
Popular students shun the non-perfect acts for their fifth grade Talent Show until they discover that what sets apart the outsiders can make for a perfectly different show!
“It was fabulous! I know we had many schools that were disappointed they were not able to have the performance at their school. Hopefully next year we can kick it off in more places!”
