Bully Assemblies NY are a New York City based theatre troupe that are now taking their shows across America to fight the bullying epidemic within the education system.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2013 -- Bullying is a serious problem in American schools and accounts for a large amount of the discord, dissatisfaction and depression suffered by a growing number of school children. This adversely affects their grades and performance and by extension their futures. Bullies also learn a culture and behavior that will damage their ability to relate to others in later life. In order to prevent this from damaging the chances of a generation, Bully Assemblies NY have formed to deliver bully prevention assemblies in schools, and have now opened this offer to K-12 schools nationwide.
The anti-bully school shows have proven effective in New York schools already and has given the troupe the mandate to extend their offer to schools around the country. The show uses a combination of storytelling, scripted exchanges, monologues and spoken word accounts to create a vivid picture of the dangers of bullying not just for the victims but for the bullies as well, cautioning against anti-social behavior while at the same time encouraging pro-social interactions.
The program is tailored depending on whether it is aimed at K-5 or K-6-12, allowing for the message to reach people at different levels of maturity in relatable terms. The show uses a cast of three taking on multiple roles.
A spokesperson for Bully Assemblies NY explained, “We are opening up bookings for our show across the country because we understand that bullying in schools is a nationwide problem and not something confined to schools in New York. We are available for bookings from K-12 schools and will be looking to start the tour as soon as possible when we can create a schedule that will allow us to visit the maximum number of schools.”
