What I liked

The story and supporting music were both extremely engaging for me. The cast did an incredible job bringing out both the humor and the opportunities for dealing with bullies. It was lighthearted in many ways, but struck me personally. I was smiling the entire time.

What I didn't like

The mics cut out a few times during the performance. It didn’t interfere with my enjoyment, but that could be better

I am also quite sad that I can not share this show with my family and many other friends. It is a part of my life.

My overall impression

More heartfelt than I expected. I completely recognize the characters and the story that The Bully Problem brings forward. I remember being bullied in high school and looking for a place where I fit in. I created the computer club, for goodness sake, how much more of a geek did I need to be.

I found my outlet in college among amazing friends. We formed a club that welcomed everyone and sometimes met in a basement.

Okay, I’ll be honest. I think I know these characters and it had me moved to tears of joy at points. This is what we all need: a world free from bullying where people can explore the best of themselves!
