Over a period of eight months IMP for Kids went into the Edgartown School’s health classes and used improv theatre games, discussions and writing prompts to gather the students’ thoughts about bullying in their school. Writer and director Donna Swift then took the student’s writings and stories and created two scripted shows; one for a middle school audience featuring high school IMP actors, the other for an elementary audience featuring middle school IMP actors.
On Tuesday, Oct. 2, and Thursday, Oct. 4, IMP will present these original theatre pieces at the Edgartown School. The show is entitled Assertions – Students Speak about Bullying, and features 15 students from all over the Island.
Tuesday’s performance features the middle school cast, Thursday’s the elementary school cast. Both performances begin at 9 a.m.
