Bridget Palmer

In this empowering residency, students use a powerful array of acting fundamentals to analyze and enact grade-specific stories, which reinforce the pillars of social emotional learning and inspire bravery in the face of adversity. Coping with bullying is specifically addressed, and through a superhero role-playing game, students practice transforming fear into courage. The residency concludes with students creating short performances demonstrating their learning, as well as a pledge to uphold the principles of a bully-free classroom. Veteran children’s theater director, Bridget Palmer, of Santa Rosa Children’s Theater, leads this transformative residency.
