Since 2008, young performers from the Random Farms Kids' Theater have toured to local schools to present this unique anti-bullying musical.

The New Kid teaches - There is something about watching peers dramatize and resolve problems that make more of an impact on a child than any lecture a "grown-up" could ever give. The New Kid was developed through interviews and acting improvisations with real kids, so the language and the lessons resonate with students.

The New Kid entertains - Unforgettable characters, catchy songs, playful choreography and a cast of top-notch child actors make The New Kid entertaining as well as educational. Students in the audience will be inspired and amazed by the vocal and acting abilities of the cast, while the familiarity of the subject matter will make it all feel "close to home."

The New Kid makes a difference – The show deals with social issues and basic human lessons that strive to assist children in their own personal development and guide them toward healthy interaction with their peers.

TESTIMONIALS


"The New Kid" performance was entertaining and instructional. The students were transfixed by the school age actors and their lively performances. The program addressed very pertinent issues regarding bullying and is in direct support of our school efforts to advance social/emotional learning and positive behaviors in our students.
Barbara Simitian Laudicina
Principal of Stillman Elementary School


"It was positive to have actors in the production that were the ages of true middle school students. It made things more convincing. The teachers have found the study guide very helpful in encouraging classroom discussion and writing activities."
Allyson Hickey
VP of Cultural Programming at St. Joseph’s Middle School


The kids absolutely LOVED the show - as did the teachers.  Even the principal said that she doesn't remember having as much positive feedback from the teachers on any other assembly.  The fact that the message was for kids, about kids, and from kids is what really resonated.  The kids could really relate to the performers and the teachers said that the show provided a spring board for further conversations in the classroom.  Thanks for providing such a wonderful show.
Mary Rubini
Assemblies Coordinator, Pequenakonck Elementary School


"Random Farms is an awesome performing group.  The kids who performed “The New Kid” were talented, professional and sang harmony beautifully.  The message on bullying was timely and well done.  As I walked through the hallways that day, the children stopped me and told me how great the play was and asked when they could come back again.  I’ve never seen this in my career as a principal.  The staff loved it, too.  WOW!"
Elaine Desimone
Principal of Furnace Woods School
