Fair and Square Leaves “Everlasting” Impact on Bullying

“It is with so much enthusiasm and a heart filled with appreciation that I thank you for putting on such a fantastic show for our students at P.S. 19 in Brooklyn. Our students loved the interactive Fair and Square performance put on by Rachel, Michelle, and Chris. These performers truly took this amazing theme to an entirely new level which of course made such a big difference in the lives of our fifth graders. Even though your show took place about six weeks ago, the effects of it seem to be everlasting. The important topic of bullying is one that really needs to be addressed in more New York City schools. I am quite certain that a show like this can improve any school with bullying issues. Please know how grateful I am to see that this show made quite an impression on our youngsters. Many thanks again.”

More about Fair and Square

After losing the school spelling bee to Roberta, McKayla accuses her of cheating. When Robert learns she might lose her award she takes matters into her own hands, placing the two of them in serious trouble. Throughout this interactive drama and workshop, students will explore themes of conflict management, actions and consequences, and peer-pressure.

During the workshop, students function as:

  • Audience members…as they view short scenes performed by the artists
  • Critical thinkers…as they reflect on the scenes and use their own reasoning to draw conclusions
  • Actors…as they implement their ideas through role playing
