October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, and Tams-Witmark is happy to announce that the new musical BULLY NO MORE! is now available for licensing. A charming musical allegory, BULLY NO MORE! explores the repercussions of bullying and celebrates the power of individuals to band together and stand up for what is right. With colorful animal characters and lively songs, the show empowers and inspires its audience to look out for one another, treat each other with kindness and respect, and “Hold On To Hope” in an imperfect world.
The one-act, 60-minute show features a cast of nine characters, which can be divided to accommodate more actors. Roles are flexible, and can be played by performers of any age or gender. Accompaniment to the score, which features eighteen original songs, is provided in prerecorded performance tracks.
BULLY NO MORE! introduces a diverse cast of creatures: bullies, targets, and a mediator who models effective solutions for people of any age. With its timely and important message, the show will undoubtedly appeal to schools, community theatres, and professional companies.
“Excellent music and writing make this a must see for the whole family!” says Mike Curtis, writer of the comic strip Dick Tracy. “It’s not often that a fresh new musical comes along that shines the spotlight on a subject most would rather not discuss,” he adds. “Bullying starts early in life… it has to be faced and corrected early, and this musical tries to do just that.”
The show’s creator, Elaine Davida Sklar, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech and Communication from the University of Michigan and a Masters of Education from Manhattanville College. She served as the Director of The Greenwich Repertory Theatre and Connecticut Playmakers, the Drama Chairman for The Masters School, and co-founded The Children’s Theatre Workshop.
Tams-Witmark is participating with Ms. Sklar to donate a portion of our revenue to non-profit organizations focused on bullying awareness and prevention.
