For nearly two years, Fringe Benefits, a team of professional artists, teachers, parents and youth, have been working to concoct "Cootie Shots," a delicious assortment of plays, songs and interactive performance pieces that promote tolerance and celebrate diversity by presenting role models of people of many different races, classes, genders, abilities, sexual orientations, religions, shapes and sizes. In all, "Cootie Shots" is comprised of about fifty 2-15 minute educational plays for Elementary School audiences. The lessons include: Love is what makes a family and Children should study whatever subjects interest them and choose career paths unhindered by gender stereotypes. The cast of characters includes: Mother Nature, Rapunzel, Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, Harvey Milk, Susan B. Anthony, The Statue of Liberty and more! Full color illustrations throughout.
