Alice’s Story

When Deanna spreads a mean rumor about Alice at school, Alice is crushed. Will she learn how to safely deal with bullies, and will Maria, a classmate who witnesses the bullying, come to Alice’s defense? Throughout this interactive drama and workshop, students will explore the themes of empathy, kindness, and community building.

During the workshop, students function as:

  • Audience members…as they view short scenes performed by the artists
  • Critical thinkers…as they brainstorm effective strategies to counteract bullying
  • Actors…as they implement their ideas through role playing

During the workshop, students function as:

  • Audience members…as they view short scenes performed by the artists
