Plymouth State University’s TIGER (Theatre Integrating Guidance, Education and Responsibility) presents Transitions, an educational production based on the writings of Plymouth State University students about sensitive issues that cause students stress. The production uses theatre, music and dance to illustrate ways in which college age students can cope with the stressors of college life and make positive choices for themselves and others. The production is funded under a three-year Garrett Lee Smith Campus Suicide Prevention Grant by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
The performances and discussions will be held from 7-8:30 p.m., April 10, 11, 12 and April 14 at 4 p.m. in Hyde Hall Room 120. The performances are acceptable for high school and college-age students and adults. There is no charge for admission.

December 20th TIGER completed a 3 day tour of Lunenburg, MA sponsored in part by the Chris Maki Foundation. The visit included performances in all three Lunenburg public schools, student workshops, and a parent workshop.
During a two week period in November TIGER visited the Portsmouth, NH area schools delivering its message to students, teachers, and parents. Performances were held at the elementary and middle schools and both parent and teacher workshops were held throughout the city.
The CMMF will be providing scholarships to schools in the Lunenburg, MA area. We are super excited as this is a part of Massachusetts that we have not yet toured. The program kicks off on December 19th and 20th when we will be performing shows at the Lunenburg Primary and Middle schools along with student and parent workshops.
