Minnesota Parent Magazine - Standing Up To Bullying: YPC play helps kids - and parents - address bullying
Lavender Magazine - Arts Spotlight: Mean
Awesome profile of YPC and Mean on TPT’s MN Original.
YPC is staging Mean again in the fall.
WOO! Everyone go see this. Now.
YPC alumnus Seth Numrich is in this! I have met him at more than one holiday party, and now he’s the lead in a giant Broadway show!
Music rehearsal for Mean. I’m so glad I have Kahlil around to make my play seem better.
SO EXCITED TO SEE/HEAR THIS ON THE STAGE.
I’m writing a theater piece for YPC about bullying and ways that kids and teenagers can be cruel to each other. (Fun, right?) I’m looking to base most if not all of the show on people’s real stories. If you you or someone you know have a story on the subject – either about being bullied as a kid, or about mean behavior you witnessed or engaged in yourself – that you would be willing to share with me, I would really appreciate it. You can email me at email@example.com (or contact me some other way, since most of the people reading this know me in real life). I may also ask to do a face-to-face interview if I think I can use your story. Questions you may want to think about:
What’s the meanest thing you’ve ever done?
What’s the meanest thing anyone’s ever done to you?
Why do you think kids pick on each other?
Why do you think certain kids get picked on more than others?
Thanks for your help!
