Award-winning performing artist and anti-bullying activist Lyle Cogen will bring her acclaimed musical play Sticks & Stones, a story about bullying behavior and how to defuse and prevent it, to the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center on Monday, October 10, 2011 for two shows at 8:45 and 10 A.M.
Ms. Cogen created Sticks & Stones to help children, parents and teachers respond to the epidemic of bullying and cyber-bullying in schools and online. “The show aims to create a positive change in the school culture by bringing the subject of bullying out in the open,” she said. “It helps children examine their own behavior and shows them how to stop being ‘bystanders’ and be ‘allies’ instead.”
From Tuesday to Friday, the Broward Center will also sponsor an interactive version of Sticks & Stones at schools throughout Broward County, including a Tuesday evening show at the Broward Partnership Homeless Shelter in Ft. Lauderdale (pls. call for more info.)
Sticks & Stones was commissioned by the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts and funded by the United States Department of Justice; it has been performed before thousands of students in theaters and schools throughout the U.S. The show, presented by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, is part of the Aventura Center’s “Smart Stage Matinee Series” – affordably-priced professional school-day performances where learning comes to life onstage for students in grades Pre-K through 12.

CBS-6 News Albany covers my PR client Lyle Cogen, who brought her anti-bullying message to an Albany school today. Lyle performed her one-woman musical, “Sticks & Stones,” before two school assemblies, then talked to Albany media about how to help kids respond to – and prevent – bullying behavior.
