On Tuesday 4 September, Brainstorm Productions will be presenting their student well-being program ‘Cheap Thrills’ for Year 9 as part of the PDHPE unit ‘Losing Control’.
Cheap Thrills is a live theatre performance that takes the audience on an emotional roller coaster as the lead character’s world becomes a boiling, emotional-cauldron, fuelled by risky behaviour and ‘cheap thrills’. This moving production is filled with convincing dialogue, intelligent humour, and memorable reminders that risky behaviour can ruin lives. But as fast as the cheap thrills come and as chaotic as the situations get, the experience is sobering and designed to give students the confidence to make good decisions and take personal responsibility for their actions.
Cheap Thrills is part of our student well-being curriculum and the program has been developed in consultation with teachers, psychologists, as well as real-life student experiences. The methodology of the program is safe, supportive and nonjudgmental and designed to provide students with positive and useful tools that they can use in their everyday lives.
More than 350,000 Australian students have already benefited from Brainstorm Productions multi award-winning educational theatre programs over the past twelve months. Their programs cater to the specific well-being needs of students, helping to create a healthy and harmonious school environment.
