Save a Life!
Each day 160,000 students do not go to school because they are bullied, teased and harassed.
Produced by the Theatre Productions students at Plano West Senior High School, “Save a Life” utilizes student performances to deliver a message regarding bullying and suicide prevention. To enhance the impact, the performers included an interactive conclusion to the performance which enabled the audience to participate and established a very personal dimension. This message was delivered to both adult and student audiences.
