ACT OUT, our live interactive theater experience is a creative and innovative approach to educating, raising awareness and effecting social change utilizing educators and actors in theatrical scenarios depicting real life situations.
Topics include dating violence, bullying, hazing, sexual harassment and sexual assault. Tailored scenarios can be created based on a school or organizations needs.
Facilitated by our educator, audience members are allowed to interview the actors, who remain in character throughout the presentation. This engaging form of socio-education opens lively and thought provoking discussions that force the characters and audience members to confront personal and societal views on the presented subject matter. During the interview portion of the program, we educate and inform not only about the presentation issue but also about risk reduction, victim support, red flags or warning signs, bystander/upstander options, how and where to get help, and the aspects of healthy relationships and strengths and skills that protect an individual.
This program is reccomended as a stand alone program but can also be a follow up to any of our in classroom programs.
