Save a Life!

Each day 160,000 students do not go to school because they are bullied, teased and harassed.
"I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go."  (Rachel Scott, 17)

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.
