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
