SCCT is passionate about the anti-bullying cause and for the past 12 years, has been bringing Bullying Prevention Programming to Upstate South Carolina schools. SCCT’s program is theatre-based and directly addresses the experiences of our youth in their day-to-day lives.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month
This month-long event was founded in 2006 by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, in an effort to prevent childhood bullying and promote kindness, acceptance and inclusion. For 12 years, SCCT has toured a live production of The Boy Who Cried Bully to elementary schools, offering factual information in an engaging format that is thought-provoking and stimulates post-show open discussions.
In light of limitations placed on SCCT by COVID-19, and since we are currently not allowed INSIDE a school, SCCT is offering a virtual version of The Boy Who Cried Bully, free of charge for ALL South Carolina elementary schools through Saturday, November 21. This offering has been underwritten by the Amick Family in honor of Suzanne Amick, with generous support from SC Arts Commission. Special thanks to Tom Quinn for kindly allowing distribution of his work. SCCT recommends this production for THIRD GRADE STUDENTS.
