Event description

Description

Join TesserAct Theatre Ensemble as we bring T. R. Frye's musical play to life. Don't Call Me Jimbo is a family friendly story that examines the bullying occurring every day in our schools. James Elliott, (Jimbo), a special needs student is being mainstreamed into the local high school. As he navigates the hallways, he discovers he is not alone as every student he meets seems to both experience and practice bullying in some form. A bright light is shone on the need for more compassion in our daily lives.

This production aims to show the harmful long-lasting effects of being bullied and possible avenues to explore when issues arise. Our goal is to heighten the awareness of bullying in our community and the resources that are available, as well as create a positive dialogue.

This production is sponsored by Speak Out Against Bullying, Inc., Free 2 Luv, the Jed Foundation, and the giving app Cauze.
