Using drama to defuse bullying

In

by Cristina Toscano
Friday, Oct. 28 — “Bully-Be-Gone: Tactics and Strategies for Reducing Bullying in Schools,” written by Mid Michigan Family Theatre’s artistic
director Bill Gordon, discusses the topic of bullying in schools and at
home.


The production is a
joint effort between Mid Michigan Family Theatre and Lansing Everett Magnet for
Performing and Graphic Arts High School. Four actors from Lansing Everett perform
skits that portray younger children in a bullying situation.



“We wanted to come
up with a way to make it entertaining and educational,” Gordon said. To make it
more fun, the audience gets to participate in the action. Gordon said during the play, there is
competition in which one character pretends to be a bully and an audience
member takes a 10-question quiz to see what he or she has learned about
bullying.



There will be two
public performances at 2 and 4 p.m. Nov. 12, and local teachers are invited to see the show free
of charge. Regular admission to the shows is $5. Mid Michigan Family Theatre is
located at 440 Frandor Ave. in Lansing.
