BOLD-choice Theatre presents The Peach

Battling Obstacles Living with Disabilities provides a unique style of theatre performance that exposes community and student audiences to the talents of individuals with disabilities, opening new channels for dialogue and providing a venue to “talk” across barriers. BOLD-choice Theatre Company is created by Choice, Unlimited.

The Peach is an original piece created by the BOLD-choice Theatre Company based on Roald Dahl’s classic novel James and the Giant Peach. The play explores the idea of finding and fostering friendship and acceptance in unexpected places. The characters in The Peach face the challenges of stereotyping, loneliness and alienation while discovering new ways to build confidence, identity and support.

The characters in the story include wicked aunts, unique insect friends, newscasters, cloud people and of course sweet James, searching for a place to belong. There are adventures and obstacles throughout, bringing the group of unlikely companions closer. As the story progresses the actors themselves share with the audience their own insights to the challenges and triumphs they have encountered.  The Peachis a not only a play, but an opportunity for audiences to lose themselves in another world while learning valuable lessons about who we all choose to surround ourselves with.

Choice, Unlimited is a private nonprofit agency dedicated to supporting individuals with disabilities and persons who are experiencing barriers to employment and community inclusion.  BOLD-choice Theatre is part of Choice, Unlimited’s Arts Program.

I am an MSW student from UMD.  Tom Wondolkowski is my supervisor for my practicum.
I want to set up a date for you to present your plat at Superior High School in an effort to educate the students and staff on issues of Bullying.
This would be part of my Social Justice assignment at UMD.  I chose this issue because Superior High School is struggling with confronting the bullying problem at this time.  The presentation of the play sounds like a way to help students identify what bullying is, it's effects and how they can help in confronting the problem. 
 It is also a less confrontational avenue to help staff gain more understanding surrounding this issue.
Please let me know what I need to do in order to make this happen.

Thank you,
Luci Mingus
