Play Focusing on Cyber-Bullying Will Be Presented Free at CCC
Students, parents and educators from area school districts are invited to join Camden County College students and other members of the College and local communities to view a free play focusing on the timely topic of cyber-bullying.
The drama "IRL: In Real Life" will be presented at no charge to attendees from 11 a.m. to noon and from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 19 in Dennis Flyer Memorial Theatre. The venue is located inside Lincoln Hall on CCC's Blackwood Campus in
"IRL: In Real Life" was written by R.N. Sandberg and is being performed by a group from George Street Playhouse in
The issue of cyber-bulling is a current and alarming problem facing many school-age children and adults today. "IRL" explores the ways cyber-bullying can occur – including via texts, Facebook, online gaming and e-mails – and demonstrates that the 24/7 nature of cyber-bullying makes it a particularly pervasive form of harassment. The play also shows how effective behavior by bystanders – those not directly involved in the cyber-bullying – can help when such incidents are taking place.
Immediately following the play, an interactive workshop will have the actors engaging the audience in a dialogue about behavior, responses and actions. The performers will then re-enact scenes from the play to show how better decision-making leads to more positive outcomes and consequences.
Although admission is free, reservations are required to ensure seating. For additional information or to reserve a seat, contact CTEP program coordinator Yvonne Kilson by telephone at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4383, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
