Oskar and the Big Bully Battle - Part 2

FALL 2017: new alley production about grit and resilience! 

Oskar and the last straw

Written by Prince gomolvilas
october 9 - december 8, 2017

Too much homework. Too many extracurricular activities, and social events. What's a kid to do? As his backpack gets fuller and voices from the outside world get louder, Oskar can’t help but feel like he can’t handle it—any of it! He just doesn't know how to deal with stress, to take back control, to be...resilient?

In this play, Oskar learns that he can bounce back, that he’s awesome…awesomely resilient! Through his journey, students come to understand that they too are good enough, and that they have the ability within themselves to bounce back.

Spring 2018: NEW SHOW ON COPING WITH CRISIS 

Oskar and the THUNDEROUS THINGAMABOB

written by prince gomolvilas and matt ackels
ADDED TOUR DATES! January 22 – March 9, 2018

An urgent and joyous new play from the creators of the acclaimed Oskar series! When 10-year-old Oskar faces a Thunderous Thingamabob, havoc ensues, and his prized sneakers are swept away! After the menace is vanquished, Oskar’s biggest challenges are only beginning. How does he—and those close to him—muddle through without crumbling? How will he tap into his innate superpowers of resilience and grit? Oskar and the Thunderous Thingamabob uses high energy, laughter, and joy to teach audiences to bounce back after a crisis and to move forward to a brighter future.

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