Delta College Lecture Theater
The Bullycide Project, a play created and performed by the Trust Theatre Ensemble of Fenton, will be performed on stage in the Delta College Lecture Theater on Tuesday, October 16.
The original play showcases the stories of real teens to raise awareness of bullying and spread the message "SEE IT, HEAR IT, and STOP IT".
This event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Delta College Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion Programs, the LGBT Committee, UNISON, PRISM, PFLAG Tri-Cities and Perceptions Saginaw Valley.
There will be an additional performance at 7pm in the Malcolm Field Theater at Saginaw Valley State University, which collaborated with Delta College in bringing this important play to our area.
The Bullycide Project is based on the book Bullycide in America, complied by Brenda High and written by mothers who have lost a child to suicide due to excessive bullying. It’s a thought-provoking performance piece to help create further awareness of the term bullycide.
