A touring production of “Oskar’s Bigger Bully Battle” comes to the Stephen F. Austin State University campus for two performances on Thursday, March 7, in W.M. Turner Auditorium as part of the Children’s Performing Arts Series.
February 9, 2024 - The Children’s Performing Arts Series at Stephen F. Austin State University will present two performances of “Oskar’s Bigger Bully Battle” Thursday, March 7, 2024 in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.
Oskar is the central character in a series of educational plays by Houston-based Alley Theatre. Oskar is a bright, excitable and extremely creative fifth-grader. In this play, a very thorny incident shocks the schoolyard, and everyone is stumped and confused. But never fear – Oskar to the rescue!
“In this wacky adventure about the bullying cycle, Oskar learns that everyday comments can start a dangerous chain reaction that stops the whole school in its tracks,” explains Diane Peterson, Fine Arts Box Office manager and director of the children’s series. “‘Oskar and the Bigger Bully Battle’ encourages students to stand up for victims, while also teaching them how to express empathy for bullies – helping everybody on the playground to move happily forward together.”
The Children’s Performing Arts Series, presented by the Micky Elliott College of Fine Arts, features professional touring shows designed to entertain, educate and engage young audiences of all ages, according to Peterson.
“Oskar’s Bigger Bully Battle” targets children in prekindergarten through fifth grades. Performances are at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Turner Auditorium is located in Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive.
Tickets are $9 for individuals and $7 per person for groups of 20 or more. Call 936.468.6407 or visit sfasu.edu/boxoffice for tickets or more information.
