“It’s not often that a fresh new musical comes along that shines the spotlight on a subject most would rather not discuss. Bully No More! tells a story too many have experienced, using familiar creatures with whom one can identify. Bullying starts early in life, and sets one on a path of infringing on the rights of others. Many never grow up, going through life thinking that might makes right. It has to be faced and corrected early, and this musical tries to do just that. Excellent music and writing make this a must see for the whole family!”   Mike Curtis, Writer of Dick Tracy

Music/Drama Teachers, Directors, and Principals
You can become the hero and mentor that inspired you to become a respected leader by helping kids change their behavior and lowering bullying incidents through performances of Bully No More!

The Bully No More! Foundation, Ltd. and publisher, Concord Theatricals, has taken a genuine interest in the growing problem of  bullying in schools. The Foundation and the publisher/licensor are 100% committed to helping you impact this issue.

Bully No More! is a musical to be performed BY, and FOR children.

Kids do not always come forward, and they suffer in silence. As a Music/Drama Teacher, Director, or Principal, you can be the catalyst to save and improve the lives of many children.

Elementary schools can perform the show in full, or the music/drama teacher can work with classes or grades, giving them different scenes, and performing them at weekly meetings over a few months, keeping the anti-bullying theme alive in the school.
Middle schools, Girls and Boys Clubs, After School Groups, and Children’s Theaters, can perform the show in full, and may take the liberty of adding or deleting dialogue to make the script relative to their needs and their issues.
AND High Schools, Colleges, Community Theaters, Summer Stocks, and Traveling Troupes can perform Bully No More! for elementary aged kids, or assisted living residents, as a community service.

Bully No More! is about diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. The show tells a story that reflects race, gender, learning disabilities, self-confidence, and conveys kindness, acceptance, and bully prevention values.
Bully No More! features nine animal characters, rather than humans who might be stereotyped or stigmatized because of their roles.

The Bully No More! Discussion Guide was written by Prevent Child Abuse VT for elementary school teachers, and encourages every child’s voice to be heard and valued with conversations and activities. Great for classroom use!

Visit Concord Theatricals. Learn about the show and how to license the rights.
