This February Dallas Children’s Theater is tackling an issue all too prevalent for our teens. Every 7 minutes a child is bullied according to the National Voices for Equality Education and Enlightenment. Bullying in every form – from open tactics like gossiping and keeping secrets, to using friendship as a weapon – can become the prelude to dangerous behaviors like depression, cutting and eating disorders. This show takes an unflinching look into the world of mean girls and exposes the consequences that bullying creates. Because that girl everyone is spreading rumors about…the one who just can’t seem to fit in…chances are, you know who she is. This production by award-winning playwright Linda Daugherty generated massive buzz when it debuted in 2007 and subsequently launched DCT’s internationally-praised teen issue series. In DCT tradition, teens and those who love them are invited to see a performance and then stay after for a conversation with local experts. This is a great opportunity for moms and daughters to attend together and hopefully opens the line of communication on this important topic.
