Bully No More! can be presented as an ongoing anti-bullying theme in elementary schools: Teachers divide the show into scenes, select one class to begin with the opening dialogue, and end after the first song. The anti-bullying message continues throughout the school year as short presentations are performed at weekly meetings.


"Bully No More! is a wonderful effort to educate children about bullying and what they can do to prevent it. Bravo!"

Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders

"It’s not often that a fresh new musical comes along that shines the spotlight on a subject most would rather not discuss. Bully No More! tells a story too many have experienced, using familiar creatures with which one can identify. The case can be made that bullying starts early in life, and even if the bullies reach adult status, it’s no guarantee that they will respect the rights of others. Bullying sets one on a path of infringing on the rights of others, and many never grow up, going through life thinking that might makes right. It has to be faced and corrected early, and this musical tries to do just that. Excellent music and writing make this a must see for the whole family!"

Mike Curtis, writer of Dick Tracy

"I am so happy to know that Bully No More! is available to schools and theater groups everywhere! Bully No More! is a must-see musical offering both wisdom and positive ways for kids to overcome bullying. Not only that, but it is thoroughly entertaining! So, if you are thinking about putting on a show, one that is both fun AND speaks to kids experience, Bully No More! would definitely be my pick!"

Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s

"Parents, teachers and students need to recognize the signs of bullying and unite against it. For our children’s sake, let us hope Bully No More! can help. I believe it will."

U.S. Senator, Patrick Leahy

"Bully No More! presents the ideal opportunity to teach children about bullying and its ramifications. The upbeat musical generates effective methods of dealing with an overwhelming and serious issue that plagues too many of our children. I strongly support this unique musical, Bully No More!, and its mission to model effective strategies. Thanks for working to bring a better understanding to poor human behavior and an effort to change it."

Lou Bivona, Founder and Board Chairman of the New York Chapter of the National Foundation for Missing and Exploited Children
