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.
THE BYSTANDER PROJECT, Concrete Temple Theatre’s stage adaptation of Young Adult author James Preller’s celebrated anti-bullying novel, Bystander, was commissioned by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation in Fall 2011. Using traditional theatre as well as original music, shadow puppetry, and projections–as well as a combination of middle school performers and professional actors–THE BYSTANDER PROJECT tells the story of Eric, who after moving to a new town, must confront the complicated issues behind bullying.
Concrete Temple Theatre offers a variety of workshops to accompany our performances. Subjects covered can include performance skills, theatrical adaptation, puppet construction, and storytelling. Workshops can be tailored to your needs, ranging from an hour-long exploration to a week long intensive. Our one-week “Bystander Workshop” allows your students to perform the entirety of the piece for their peers. Please inquire to specify desired content, length, and price.
