Quotes from our past Participatory show Are We There Yet?:

"You seem to have found the perfect line between educating without being preachy, and informative without being explicit or offensive.  Seeing Grade 9 students fully engaged for 90 minutes was amazing and a credit to your cast and crew."

Wade Hartel
Donnan School

“…It was very informative. I think that all of what was said was completely necessary for the students to hear.  It related to us on a level that made us teens want to listen and be engaged in what was taking place… was well thought out and clever. It was a comfortable atmosphere and everyone had a blast!”

Grade 9 Student
Bert Church High School, Airdrie



Bullying behavior is something that schools, families, communities and young people are grappling with every day. From the company that brought you the ground-breaking Are We There Yet?, The Bully Project is a brand new interactive play for Junior Highs that explores the complex reasons why bullying behavior happens, and what young people and the adults and communities who care about them can do about it. Audience participation is key to this engaging project, that defines bullying, takes audiences through character based scenes and improvised endings to explore the complexities around the issue, helps students find safe and constructive ways to combat this behavior, and helps educators set school boundaries and policies. 

Curriculum Ties: Wellness: analyze the definition, effects and possible consequences of various forms of harassment, stress management, analyze, evaluate and refine personal communication patterns, conflict management skills. Language Arts: analyze choices and motives of characters.

Study Guide Available.
