We Can't Wait To Hear From You!


“The only word that I can ever think of after CLIMB is spectacular. Your actors can get the shy, sit back kid up on his/her feet and involved like no other. It is amazing how the message comes across and is remembered…The creative excitement, involvement of kids, the power message, and the creative teaching is awesome. More people should know about your talents and use them.”
--Terri Petry, Fourth Grade Teacher, Longfellow School, Minot, ND

CLIMB's new bullying prevention plays, Jays Away and Actors' Union Club, are a hit!  Teachers are calling the plays engaging, real, powerful, and relevant.  Learn more about how schools are using CLIMB's plays to tackle bullying through these news stories on NNC Now, Fox News, and WJFW TV-12.
