An absorbing, authentic and fun program to help students ride a roller-coaster time in their young lives - brought to you by an acclaimed performer and comic genius who started out absolutely hating school. Robert Post is the creator of Post Comedy Theatre, a collection of dazzling, often hilarious sketches that have delighted audiences all around the world. What most people don’t know is that Post was miserable in middle school. Because of a learning disability, he was far from a good student. He felt stupid. He felt that he had nothing to offer. And he felt confused and alone. It was only when he discovered his talent as a performer that he began to appreciate his individual worth. So Post brings great empathy to middle-school students, and as part of his show he shares his own experience. His personal story reassures students that, whatever their self-doubts, they are unique people with unique gifts. In this brand new multimedia performance, kids talk to kids via video testimonials in a compelling, funny and educational show dealing with real issues affecting students today, including social media, testing, bullying and peer pressure. Age Appropriateness: Sixth - Eighth Grades
