Once upon a time, we taught children through the oral tradition. Now studies prove children who actively listen to stories, expand their imaginations, becoming better thinkers, readers, and writers. Storytelling, especially by a master of the art, provides an ideal way to educate children. Tell me your story. I’ll tailor tales for your school.

More than just a play, THE BYSTANDER PROJECT also serves as a vehicle for student discussion and a catalyst for getting students and communities to talk about difficult issues surrounding bullying. Concrete Temple teaches workshops to students on theatrical adaptations and storytelling. The play features walk on roles for student actors, and comes with a study guide to help foster discussion about the performance. Additionally, students are encouraged to give voice to their ideas concerning bullying issues.
