UP next - Frog Prince and Hansel & Gretel

The month of February sees two new shows on tour! On February 5th, we will be performing The Frog Prince at Westborough High School in Westborough, MA.

Splash! Young Prince Noble is having a really bad day - a smelly Gypsy woman is in love with him, he gets pushed down a well, and then he’s transformed into an icky green frog! Now instead of traveling the land looking for a beautiful wife, he's short, green, and hoping to catch a fly for dinner! Will Prince Noble learn a lesson in humility and win the lovely Princess Cassandra’s heart? Watch as plots twist, stories intertwine, and all the characters discover that Happy Endings can happen when you least expect them!


Then, on February 19th and 20th, we will be performing Hansel & Gretel as part of our monthly series in RI and MA.

When Hansel and Gretel go for a walk in the woods, they stumble upon every child's dream: a house made entirely of candy! But when the house's owner, a silly witch named Grumpella Finklestink, discovers them, delight could turn into disaster.

All shows are at 2pm. For more information, call us at (401) 942-3637.

A Bully Free New Year

Check out Marianne's Blog at http://secretsofsuccessnewsletter.blogspot.com/

We’re one week into the New Year, one week past making those resolutions that most of us don’t keep for a variety of reasons. We quit making whatever changes we’re looking to make too soon (Research shows that it takes twenty-one to twenty-eight days to build or break a habit) or we take on something we think we need to change but actually don’t want to change. Keeping resolutions is just not that easy... READ MORE

5 Myths about BULLYING

Thanks, Chuck for sharing!

5 Myths about Bullying from the Washington Post


From schoolyards to workplaces and now in cyberspace, it seems that bullies are everywhere. New efforts to stop them and to help victims cope - such as the It Gets Better campaign - are gaining attention and popularity, but are they the best ways to protect kids and others from the worst forms of bullying? For them to have a fighting chance, let's first dispense with a few popular fallacies about getting picked on.

1: Most bullying happens online
2: Bullies are bullies and victims are victims
3: Bullying ends when we grow up
4: Bullying is the major cause of suicides
5: We can end bullying. Can we? The debate rages on, but we still always try!!
 
See the full article, with explanations of each point, on the Post's website!
