"Rumors of Polar Bears is the perfect short drama for middle school students.  It allows them to explore complex characters that young people can really relate to.  It also lets them see beyond their middle school world into the bigger world around them, and they can see what their choices are doing to that world.  My students made their own costumes, designed their own hair and makeup and built their props from scratch.  I allowed the students to use a lot of organic blocking, which allowed them to test their acting chops in ways that they normally don’t get to do in middle school theatre.  I have never seen students take such ownership of a project as they did with Rumors of Polar Bears." - Shelley Goldstein, Marshall Middle School (Beaumont, TX)
