About the play:

Bellamy the young Bison Bull loves his enclosure at the zoo, but not the other Bison Bulls who bully him!! Being the focus of the “Bully Bull-Ring” is tough for a young Bison when none of the adult herd seem to notice. Now name calling, being left out & getting roughed up have become part of everyday life. How much can one Bison bare??

Join Bellamy as he escapes his enclosure & travels the zoo learning the animal kingdom’s solution to bullying. Will he “Rise Above It” like a Giraffe, use the “Camouflage” of a Zebra, or find a “Better Buddy” like the Polar Bear? Which way works best?

The characters all perform their own song & dance numbers to help Bellamy understand different approaches to resolving the issues of bullying. With lesson plans & question time incorporating the ideals of programmes such as “You Can Do It” & “Better Buddies” just to name a few. Ideal for schools focussing on bullying into the future.
