CLIMB Theatre Performances At ACGC Elementary

CLIMB Theatre Offers Fresh Approach on Bullying at ACGC North Elementary


Today’s emerging research, technologies, and legislation necessitate an updated look at what action to take to stop bullying and spread kindness in their communities. CLIMB Theatre answers this need with two brand new bullying prevention plays, Jays Away for grades K-2, and The Actors’ Union Club for grades 3-6. These plays will be performed at ACGC North Elementary in Atwater on October 2nd, where students will learn simple strategies for what to do when they see bullying happen, or when they are bullied themselves.

About the Plays


Jays Away

A cowering cowbird, who is bothered by a blue jay who bullies, gets advice from her friend the rhyming robin. But when an unkind newcomer comes to roost, both bird buddies will have to look to each other, and to the wise tree Big Ben, to learn how to make their tree a home worth chirping about. CLIMB actors, along with colorful puppets, will show students that standing up against bullying isn’t just for the birds!

The Actors’ Union Club

When Duncan convinces his friends, Adrian and Mallie, to start an acting club, he has no idea that the scenes they create will help Adrian stand up to a kid at school who’s bullying him! But before the director says cut, Duncan and Mallie, who have been watching bullying and doing nothing, will discover that they too have an important role to play in stopping bullying and creating kindness.
