The message of the presentation is that every child has the power of one, the power to report and deal with bullying when they see it. Scenes are done that show the roles in bulling (bully, target, bystander), types of bullying (physical, cyber, exclusion), types of bystander behaviour (watching, cheering, ignoring), and proper actions that should be taken (as noted earlier: report, walk the target away, intervene).
The show is developed around the use of colors, masks, and boxes. Combined in strategic fashion, these theatrical devices create vivid imagry that helps children remember the show and its message.
