Keep the Peace! Anti-bullying
program for K-12

We offer performances and residencies in schools around issues of bullying, harassment, tolerance and empathy. In the performance model, BAPT offers interactive performances in which students address issues relating to bullying and violence, including sexual harassment. In each performance, children will be invited to tell personal stories and feelings about bullying, which the performers will enact on the spot.

In the residency model, we train a select group of students in Playback Theatre in weekly workshops and then include them as actors in performances for other students. These student-leaders become anti-bullying "ambassadors" for the school.

Performances take place for up to two classes/50 students at a time.
