Award-Winning In-School Theatre Performances
On Tuesday 4th April Brainstorm Productions will be presenting their student wellbeing program ‘Verbal Combat’ for Year 7-9 students, and Being Brave for Year R-6 students.
Verbal Combat is a live performance that addresses the consequences of cyber bullying, harassment and unhealthy friendship groups. It clearly defines the behaviours that constitute bullying and encourages empathy and compassion. It gives clear strategies for supporting victims and resisting peer pressure to say or post hurtful comments.
Verbal Combat is part of our student wellbeing curriculum and the program has been developed in consultation with teachers, psychologists, as well as real-life student experiences. The methodology of the program is safe, supportive and nonjudgmental and designed to provide students with positive and useful tools that they can use in their everyday lives.
More than 350,000 Australian students have already benefited from Brainstorm Productions multi award-winning educational theatre programs over the past twelve months. Their programs cater to the specific wellbeing needs of students, helping to create a healthy and harmonious school environment.

Monty Pryor is a storyteller, writer and performer. He was also the first Australian Children’s Laureate and he has a number of film projects on the go. Year 9 students were fortunate to enjoy a longer session than originally planned with Monty, as a result of their positive responses and excellent audience skills. Monty is an animated, expressive speaker who quickly had students laughing about his school experiences and his recollection that he ended up spending more time in the principal’s office than the principal!
