Rarely Done Productions and the Syracuse Children’s Theatre are producing a play promoting dialogue about anti-violence/anti-bullying by William Mastrosimone called “Bang Bang You’re Dead.”

The dates for the play are as follows: May 3rd, 4th, 5th, 10th, 11th and 12th at Jazz Central in downtown Syracuse (441 East Washington Street). All shws are at 8pm.

“Bang Bang You’re Dead” is FREE to the public.

Directed by Dan Tursi, this powerful, moving, and inspiring production aims to show the community of Syracuse the consequences of violence and bullying and alternatives to such behavior. All performances are followed by a
talk back.
In light of the recent VA Tech violence, I urge you to reserve your FREE tickets today! It is a short piece, with a very talented cast who has poured their hearts into raising awareness about school shootings, bullying
and violence, as a means to create community dialogue and to utilize the craft of theatre as a tool of activism. This is theatre of life. I am operating lights and sound and work extensively with the students throughout the
unique rehearsal process. This is a project that is very personal to me as an educator, mediator and artist. I urge you to show your support!!!

For more information about the performances call 882-4070 or email danhawthorne@yahoo.com.

To reserve your FREE tickets, please call the box office at 546-3224 (although the show is FREE, it is suggested that you reserve your
tickets, as the house is small and most nights sell out).
