All Access Productions came to Port Jefferson Middle School and Earl L. Vandermeulen High School on March 28 to give performances of “No More Victims,” a professionally produced musical that follows the lives of four high school students in various social roles within their school. The story gives insight into the students’ public personas and private struggles through singing, dancing, acting and video segments.
“Think about the choices you make,” said Port Jefferson Middle School Principal Antonio Santana. “Be conscious of what you say to yourself and to others.”
“No More Victims” confronts the ongoing issue of bullying and violence in America’s schools and local communities. The production targeted bullying, cyberbullying, teen violence, teen suicide, image, self-worth, popularity, high expectations by adults and peers, and difficult relationships, among other issues.
After the performance, students were able to participate in a question-and-answer session and have lunch with some of the All Access cast members. The event was sponsored by the Port Jefferson PTSA.
