TFK 2012 Person of the Year Nominee
Alice's Story is a show produced by a theater company called Making Books Sing. The show, which helps kids understand and deal with bullying, is performed in schools. Actors read short scenes about bullying and discuss them with students. Students have parts in the show too. "We wanted to create a program that allows the audience to play roles," explains Brooke Boertzel, one of the show's creators. "Stepping into someone else's shoes and practicing empathy in a safe environment is extremely effective in addressing bullying."
