LOOKING FOR CHILD ACTORS FOR STAGE PLAY IN DC /MD/VA SCHOOLS (Washington DC)

compensation: you will begin to be paid once we get the show up.

The Writer and Director of "Don't Tell Grandma I Met Him Online" has done it again through his Big Brother Butler Productions, with his new play,

BULLYING: THE NEW B-WORD


Life for 12/14 yr. old Keona leaves a lot to be desired. Between not communicating with her mom and seldom ever seeing her dad except on occasional holidays, can she even take anymore, when the school bully begins to target her.

As 12/14 yr. old Rashaad struggles to find his way, it appears he doesn’t have a friend in the world. Will his school guidance counselor be that friend? Or how about old man Freeman?
Will he ever stand up to Zaveon the school bully?
Find out what happens to Keona and Rashaad as you watch this new comedy drama play unfold, coming to your school soon!
