Cazenovia “Standing By, Standing Up: A One-Man Show about Bullying” will be presented by Tim Collins on at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1 in the Cazenovia Public Library Community Room.
Parents, students and educators are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Aimed at fourth- to twelfth-grade students, Collins’ performances not only confront the serious consequences of bullying, but also identify hopeful outcomes and ways that students can prevent violence in their schools and lives.
“This show’s portrayal of bullying is spot-on,” said Dr. Lorien Carter, of Washington University. “It provides great information on how to recognize and prevent bullying in schools.”
Collins, who is a Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School Class of 1992 alumnus, has gained attention as an actor, playwright and nationally-touring solo theater performer. His shows about bullying are regarded as a must-see for all.
Returning to Central New York, Collins will perform his educational one-man show at six Mid-York libraries, and the Community Action Partnership, throughout the week of Oct 3. By providing highly-effective learning activities, adults and children alike can be a part of the solution to end violence.
A “Q and A” session will follow the performance, giving audience members a chance to discuss bullying and other related issues.
Collins is a past recipient of the Wallis Grant, a Roblee Grant and a Missouri Department of Mental Health Grant.
