McDonough students highlight bullying in musical

Posted: Updated:

A group of elementary school students used the performing arts to address a serious issue.

Tussahaw Elementary's drama club presented the musical Bully Me Not Thursday night at Tabernacle of Praise Church International in McDonough.

The third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade actors used song and dance to spread the message bullying is not OK.

"In this play we're giving the children not only a picture of what bullying looks like, but we're also letting them know there is a solution," said Annetta Swift, the writer and director of the play. "We're giving them teachers, we're giving them students and people who understand where they are, who's going to fight for them."

Nearly 70 students participated on stage and behind the scenes. Organizers hope everyone can learn something from the production.
