A fast-paced adventure sure to delight any audience, see why Black History Hall of Fame has come to be one of our audiences’ favorite shows of all time!

How Will You Celebrate National Bully Prevention Month (October)?

Bright Star Touring Theatre is one of the nation’s largest providers of Bully Prevention programming and we are heading out this fall with eight incredible bully prevention titles!

Choose from:
The Pirate of Bully Bay
Maximus Mars: An Intergalactic Antibullying Adventure
Bullysaurus Rex
Friend Request: An Online Safety Show
Little Red and the Big Bully Wolf
Bullied
Captain Friendship and the Bully Bandit

We know that there is no magic pill for ending bullying in schools. However, we do know that school climate and culture plays into the mix, and we also know that quality arts experiences can help with school climate. A bully prevention show from Bright Star can be a valuable part of your efforts to help students take a stand against bullying.

In addition to Bully Prevention we also have shows on topics like Black History, STEM, Women’s History, and Classic Literature.

All of our 45 minute shows come with study guides and are aligned with state/national standards. They fit perfectly into a school class period, and we have shows that are appropriate for early elementary all the way through high school. We also offer residencies and workshops to give students a hands-on, arts enriched experience.

Pricing is straightforward: $895 all-inclusive for a single show – $250 for each additional show from the same tour and on the same day, back-to-back. You can save $200 off the price of your show by booking with another area school for the same day!

Bullying Doesn’t Have to be a Part of Growing Up

Educators know that bullying has dire consequences. It leads to poor emotional, mental and physical health, poor performance in school, attendance issues and often violence. We know that students who are bullied are more than twice as likely to struggle with one of these issues, and also be more likely to perpetuate the cycle by bullying others as well.

The good news is, bullying doesn’t have to be a part of every child’s school experience. While there’s no magic answer that ends it, a comprehensive school education plan that engages students and the community can help. That’s where Bright Star Touring Theatre comes in.

Our Bully Prevention shows serve as a great kickoff event or regular part of your community’s efforts to reduce violence, end bullying and teach empathy. In addition to directly addressing Bullying, all Bright Star shows have relevant social/emotional learning components and strong character education lessons.

We would love to have the opportunity to work with you this fall to help end bullying and teach students to be compassionate and caring friends. We have eight different shows to choose from.

Choose from:
The Pirate of Bully Bay
Maximus Mars: An Intergalactic Antibullying Adventure
Bullysaurus Rex
Friend Request: An Online Safety Show
Little Red and the Big Bully Wolf
Bullied
Captain Friendship and the Bully Bandit
The Story of Anne Frank

Bullying Has No Place In Our Schools

We all know the trauma that bullying can cause. Emotional distress, loss of interest in activities, poor academic performance, absenteeism, and depression are all linked to bullying.

At Bright Star, we know that there isn’t a “magic pill” that can end bullying. It requires organized effort by staff, students and parents alike.

However, we do know that a solid Bully Prevention Assembly can help open the doors to help staff and students understand:

1.) What bullying is (and isn’t)
2.) How to communicate openly about bullying
3.) How to confront and report bullying
4.) How to be resilient if facing bullying

Bright Star has a number of Bully Prevention shows in our line-up for the Fall.
The Fall is a great time to set the tone that bullying won’t be tolerated at your school. Take a look at our Bully Prevention shows and consider making Bright Star a part of your Bully Prevention efforts this year.

Choose from:
The Pirate of Bully Bay
Maximus Mars: An Intergalactic Antibullying Adventure
Bullysaurus Rex
Friend Request: An Online Safety Show
Little Red and the Big Bully Wolf
Bullied
Captain Friendship and the Bully Bandit
The Story of Anne Frank
