"Out Of Bounds" Performance

"Out of Bounds" Performance at the PACE Center in Parker, Colorado

Out of Bounds tells the story of cyber bullying from the viewpoint of 14-year-old Amy and her peers. On a dare, Amy posted a picture of herself online that she shouldn't have. Now that she has transferred to a new school, she hopes she can make a fresh start. But when a rival finds the whole embarrassing history online, this time Amy has nowhere to run. This honest production is both thoughtful and powerful for today’s students facing multi-faceted bullying. 


Performances are as follows:
  • School Performance, Feb 4th 10:00 am.
  • Public Performance at night, Feb 3rd 6 pm.
  • Teacher and Counselor Workshop, Feb 4th 5pm-7pm

Teachers and school counselors are invited to a free Out of Bounds Workshop on February 4th from 5:00pm - 7:00pm at PACE Center. This workshop is designed to introduce teachers to exercises that can be used in their classrooms as a way to help students talk about bullying in a safe and productive manner. To participate in the workshop, please RSVP to kfletcher[at]parkeronline[dot]org
