Community Programs – Grounded: A Play to Teach Children Choices

The play revolves around a young girl, Aimy Fairfax, and her very big dilemma. Aimy is the new kid in town whose new friends want her to experiment with cigarettes and alcohol. During the play, Aimy expresses states of confusion and anxiety as she carefully weighs every aspect of her decision. As Aimy struggles with her dilemma, she stumbles across the Find Out Phaser, a talking statue in her attic. In the end, Aimy realizes that using cigarettes and alcohol would seriously hinder the quality of her life. The students watch carefully and intently as Aimy acts out all the possible scenarios.
