Program Premieres in Plymouth September 13 at the Flying Monkey

PLYMOUTH, N.H.—Plymouth State University’s TIGER educational theater and New Hampshire Public Television (NHPTV) announce the premiere screening of a new TV program, TIGER Takes On Bullying, at the Flying Monkey Movie House and Performance Center in Plymouth at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13.

TIGER Takes On Bullying is a lively, music-filled half-hour special that helps elementary school children learn how to deal with bullying in school, online and socially.

By using children’s own words, TIGER Takes On Bullying depicts their real experiences of bullying and intolerance, and shows how to move to more positive social interactions at school and in the community.

The program helps students resolve bullying behaviors and guides those who witness bullying behavior and don’t know what to do. Preview the program and find resources for teachers, students and families to help avoid and overcome bullying at nhptv.org/tiger.

Scenes for the show were filmed at Plymouth Elementary School using 25 children and the TIGER troupe of actors, as well as at the NHPTV Broadcast Center in Durham.

PSU’s TIGER (Theater Integrating Guidance, Education, and Responsibility) is a powerful and exciting collaboration between the integrated arts and the counselor education graduate programs at Plymouth State University. TIGER is a traveling professional theater company designed to help children, schools, parents, and communities deal proactively and positively with social issues and concerns facing children in schools today. TIGER actors are PSU alumni Chris Gonzalez, Colleen Eliason and Brandee Peglow, with Richard Moses and Cait McKay.

Following the premiere, the program will air on NHPTV and be available online and for purchase on DVD. Upcoming broadcast dates and times are:

Friday, Sept. 14 at 6 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8:30 a.m.

Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 11:30 a.m.
