Oskar and the big bully battle

written by prince gomolvilas
 

Ten-year-old Oskar loves his new shoes! They belong in a museum of GRRRReatness! Or at least they did until Frank stepped on them. If apologies had happened then and there, this playground mishap would not have escalated into a wild adventure illustrating the roles of victim, bully, bystander, and upstander.

This comic assembly was developed by award-winning theatre artists to help students understand the multiple perspectives involved in an escalating incident of bullying. Oskar and the Big Bully Battle! received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from Houston schools during previous tours.

Oskar and Curiously Colorful clash

written by prince gomolvilas and Matt ackels

Ten-year-old Oskar loves his orange hat! He’s had it all his life, and all his friends have one too. But when Billy moves to town, Oskar is shocked and confused. Billy wears a blue hat. This is not the way things are supposed to be in Orange Hat, Texas. Oskar will stop at nothing to bring order to his perfectly orange and unassorted hometown.

This comic assembly was developed by award-winning theatre artists to help students understand and embrace diversity in every sense of the word. OSKAR has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from Houston schools. One teacher and school parent commented:

“I went up to my son’s class while they were waiting in line to leave and said, ‘So what did you guys think?’.  They responded, ‘That was so cool!’ Then my son says, ‘Mom, you got that part of what they're talking about is racism right?’. Before I can respond a cute little girl says, ‘It is about racism . . . partly . . . and they do it in a really neat way . . . in a nice way.’"

"Showcased a non-traditional aspect of accepting differences among peers. Funny, silly, and totally meaningful approach to dealing with this issue."
