Taming the Bully Thing

Human-size puppets and energetic human actors reveal the secret of "the bully thing" -- that impulse within each of us to use our personal power to harm others, even when we don't mean to. Friendly, likeable characters confront the "bully thing" inside themselves and each other, and learn how to keep that thing under control! An entertaining and thought-provoking show for young audiences.
