The award-winning, sex-positive theater group, Not Ready for Bedtime Players, returns to Springfield College Thursday, April 17 at 8:30 p.m. in the Fuller Arts Center.
This group comes from nearby – UMASS Amherst – where they perform skits that address issues including health and sexuality to relay messages to the community on how to be safe.
The last time this group was on campus they interacted very well with the students and audience. It is an excellent educational experience delivered in a unique way that will talk about serious issues of sexual assault, sexual health, relationships and communication.
Their performance will also include information on violence prevention and substance use as well as sexually transmitted diseases and infections. They use interesting techniques in order to get the message that they are trying to address across.
This is a great opportunity for the community to become more aware and understand the dangers of the health issues that could be impacting them. Awareness is something that is spread throughout college campuses, and is a part of Springfield College’s demeanor of being a healthy community.
This group strives to reach their goal of educating people to think critically about sexuality. They encourage students to make safer decisions and take the edge of the seriousness off the topic so that they can laugh and enjoy themselves while becoming more aware.
