"The Big, Bad Bullysaurus" presented by the Walnut Street Theatre
When Paleontologist Mark learns that his niece Natalie is being harassed by a local bully, he tells her the story of Ryan Rex Jr., a little dinosaur with a big bully problem of his own. This updated version of a school favorite is a great addition to any antibullying curriculum and will help to teach students the importance of kindness and respect for others and how to create a more positive environment for their school community.
