STICKS & STONES

By Stacey Maxwell

Starring Peter and Christina Holland of

Once Upon a Blue Ridge in partnership with Porkchop Productions


FOR GRADES PREK-5
RUNNING TIME 45 MINS

STICKS & STONES
NEW ANTI-BULLYING SHOW IS A HIT!

"Betty Barsky threatens to punch William Winky in the nose!"
  

"Sticks and Stones was a fantastic performance, perfect for all ages, with a simple message to aid in being bullied.  As principal, I recommend this performance to elementary, middle, and even high schoolers. The Hollands are great."

 

 Jeannie King, Principal,  

Meadows of Dan Elementary School,  Meadows of Dan, VA   

 

 "Sticks & Stones is a very effective, simple way to get the bullying message out there for the kids to understand. It is educational and memorable."

 Derina Scott, Guidance Counselor,

PATRICK COUNTY SCHOOLS, VA 

 

"Sticks and Stones is an excellent bully awareness program that deals with actual incidents that students can relate to. The three rules of what to do when confronted by bullying (stand tall, don't fall, tell all) are right on target, providing students with specific guidelines to follow."

 

 
Nancy Wilmouth
Principal, St Paul School, Cana, VA


"William Winky shakes hands with Betty Barsky
after she changes her bad bullying behavior"

"The Hollands have been involved with The Surry Arts Council this past year and weekly during the summer months.

 They have worked with special needs children and adults, drama groups, seniors, and families.

 Their talents range from theatre and drama to crafts and music.

They participated in our annual summer weekly arts camps pm a daily basis as well.

They are absolutely wonderful with all of these groups and we look forward to having them back again in 2012 for these activities and more!

 

They are an incredibly talented duo - and real crowd pleasers.

Their ability to involve audiences of all ages is unmatched."
