Kevin won’t talk. To anyone. Bullied, alone and scared he spends his weekend hiding out and sleeping in a cardboard box, hoping that somehow, his biggest nightmare, being bullied, will go away.
When Kevin refuses to go to school on Monday, his Mum flips her lid! Enter a friendly school visitor who discovers Kevin’s magic drawing board and an ex-bully who tells Kevin the secret he needs to know.
Filled with magic, theatre, surprises and innovation, Speak Up! takes children on a magical journey as they learn from Kevin and his friends how to deal with bullying.
Jodie has toured Speak Up! extensively throughout Queensland performing to thousands of wonderful children.
