Meet JAKE THE APE – the biggest bully this side of the North Pole. Meet SALLY SIMPER – the richest, prettiest and bitchiest girl in the whole school. Put them alone together in the detention room and you have trouble with a capital ‘T’!

At first the only way JAKE and SALLY can relate to each other is to bully each other. But when they have been locked inside the class room and there is no sign of the teacher MRS GREASEBOTTOM ever coming back – strange things start to happen….

BULLY BUSTERS explores all facets of bullying, including:

  • Sexual Harassment;
  • Peer Pressure;
  • Rumours;
  • Racism;
  • Judging Others;
  • Tolerance;
  • Family Problems;
  • Resilience; and
  • Electronic Forms of  Bullying.
Ballajura Community College, Perth
“The students really enjoyed the performance. They were engaged on several levels and particularly responded to audience interaction by performers. The students remembered loads the next day.”

Melbourne Grammar, Melbourne
“ This was a worthwhile exercise making strong comment about individual differences, discrimination, styles of bullying and emotional responses. Well done.”

Kogarah High School, Sydney
“ Overall, it’s an excellent performance. Thank you. Students really enjoyed it. They could see aspects of themselves in the characters. It’s really funny, too! The question time was very useful.”

Swan View SHS, Perth
“Many teachers commented on its suitability for kids we deal with everyday. It hit the target superbly. Thanks for the performance.”

Korowa Anglican Girls’ School, Melbourne
“ Using humour, caricature and song this production cleverly addressed bullying in all its forms; and more importantly ways in which to combat the behaviours.”

Queenwood School for Girls, Sydney
“ A professional production. It forced the students to self reflect.”

Corpus Christi College, Perth
“The actors were really tuned in to the needs of the audience. There was a perfect blend of humour, music and costumes that helped get the message across.”

Bayside Secondary College, Melbourne
“ The play was terrific – it generated excellent discussion back in the classroom. The kids really looked at their own behaviour – a couple admitted to being bullies.”

OLSH Kensington, Sydney
“ This is an important topic and we value opportunities to have theatre groups expose such issues in a palatable and entertaining form.”
