A T.V. remote control and a few talented actors are all you need to produce this lively and cunningly educational play! It treats substance abuse quite seriously, but it makes sure a young audience has plenty of fun along the way. The ensemble plays several roles each, doing skits full of wise cracks and questions about abusing cigarettes, drinking, drugs, and guns. There's mime, and a remote control that can make actors go fast forward, slow-motion, or speak in rewind! Toured by the Missoula Children's Theatre with great success. From the author of Playing Hardball.
"It was great! I think the staff was chuckling as much as the students. It is wonderful to sponsor a program that's so popular with everyone." - Vicki Gorder, Spokane Public Schools Drug Alcohol Program
"We loved it! We had some great discussions after the performance." - Mrs. Barger, Ronan Elementary School, Ronan, MT
Sticks and Stones was originally produced by the Missoula Children's Theatre Issues and Awareness Tour on October 7, 1991 and was directed by Stacey Gordon.
