BMS presents “Higher Ground”: A Play about Bullying, Betrayal & Banding Together in Middle School

A controversial play that takes a frank look at school bullying, touching on issues such as body image, race and sexuality. “Higher Ground” addresses the often painful middle school life where students live under a magnifying glass, with every word and action subject to examination and judgment by their peers. The play takes a frank look at school bullying, touching on issues such as body image, race and sexuality. Characters are taunted for various reasons throughout the play, before banding together and learning to stand up to it in the end. Performances - Friday, May 11 and Saturday, May 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Reserved Tickets online at http://www.bedfordactinggroup.com : $15 & $12 for adults and $10 for students. General Admission seats available at the door for $10.
